“How many pies should we bake, dad? There are only 5 of us for dinner.”



“Two. Because there is nothing better on God’s green earth than apple pie for breakfast.”

“Ah yes, of course.”

We are making two apple pies for Thanksgiving this year, both with cranberries. The plan is for me to make make the pie dough on Wednesday and for dad to make the pies on Thursday morning, before the turkey goes in. For those of you still deciding what pie(s) to make, assembled is a collection of Thanksgiving pie recipes from Simply Recipes, and links to several delicious sounding recipes from other food blogs.

    Thanks for mentioning me. My strategy this year will be prayer, actually. I have two cranberry tarts, one apple pie and one pumpkin cheesecake to make before noon on Thursday and got back from work too late last night to start. Can we say Baking All-Nighter? I hope you have a lovely T-Day Elise!

    It’s good to know our family is not alone…I’ll be making four….count em’….FOUR desserts for our Thanksgiving dinner this year…pumpkin pie (I’ve always used the recipe on the back of the Libby’s canned pumpkin label), pecan pie, my mother’s “Jewish Apple Cake”, and for the first time, we’ll be going with your recipe for Indian pudding. Finally, we’ll “gild the lily” with mounds of fresh, homemade whipped cream. For the lightweights, I’ll serve fresh mandarin oranges, pears and apples with nuts. Note: there’ll only be five of us together this year (we have six children, but only three will be with us).

    Does anyone have a recipe for pumpkin crunch pie?

    With much concentration, I prepared Suzanne’s old fashioned pumpkin pie from scratch (including filling and recommended pie crust). The proof will be in the eating tonight but it smelled absolutely delicious and looks wonderful. Many thanks!

    I am currently baking an apple pie and about to start making the crust for the pumpkin pie. We will be having 8 adults here…but we also have a just finished homemade cheesecake.
