“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.

    10-12 pies are baked in our home every Thanksgiving Eve. Family members and friends join us for a little wine and a lot of pie making the Wednesday before Thanksgiving every year. It’s always so much fun. My husband prepares the pie dough early in the morning and then everyone grabs a pie recipe or two to prepare. We get to catch up, laugh, act silly, and enjoy each other’s company before the chaos of Thanksgiving dinner and the start of the holiday season.

    Two pumkin, & two Rhubarb cheesecake pies. Pumkins for me and the father-in-law, Rhubarb cheesecake pie’s for my husband. He won’t eat the Pumkin pie, lol.

    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?

  • Carol Shani

    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!
