Let’s be real. We might make a big deal about the amazing golden hue of this year’s roast turkey and go back for seconds of Grandma Dola’s famous green bean casserole, but most of us are really just waiting a polite and acceptable period of time until we can hit the dessert table.
We’re just here for the pie, thanks.
There’s a lot riding on these Thanksgiving pies. Do you stick to tradition, or branch out into something new? Will your brother be upset if you don’t make “his” pumpkin pie this year? How many pies do you really need? (Trick question: you need all of them.)
Here’s my advice — give yourself a break when it comes to Thanksgiving dessert. Make one or two traditional pies, but then make some room for something new on the table. Who knows — your picky brother might just discover a new favorite!
