If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you'll know that I love to bake (and eat) anything sweet. So how could I not share a few dessert recipes for Thanksgiving?
The photo is from last Thanksgiving.. lots of sweets! This wasn't even all of it, there was a couple more pies on the table. lol
So this is what I'm making this year:
2 c crushed graham crackers
1/3 c sugar
½ c melted butter
¾ c sugar
8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 c pumpkin
3 egg yolks (save whites)
½ tsp salt
½ c sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
½ c milk
1 envelope plain gelatin
¼ c cold water
3 egg whites
¼ c sugar
-Mix crushed graham crackers, 1/3 c sugar and melted butter. Line a 9x13 pan with mixture.
-Beat 2 eggs, ¾ c sugar and cream cheese. Spread on top of graham cracker mixture. Bake 2 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool.
-Combine pumpkin, 3 egg yolks, salt, ½ c sugar, cinnamon and milk. Cook until thick.
-Mix gelatin and water. Add to pumpkin mixture. Let cool.
-Beat 3 egg whites and ¼ c sugar until stiff. Fold into cold pumpkin mixture. Pour over cooled crust and refrigerate.
And for my Georgia boy: Chocolate Pecan Pie from Martha Stewart. You can find the recipe here. I've never made this (I usually just make a regular pecan pie), so I'm anxious to see how it tastes.
What are you making for tomorrow?
