Favorite Thanksgiving Desserts- Not Pie!
Any thoughts about your favorite Thanksgiving desserts that don't include pie? Trying to come up with something a little different to supplement the endless types of pie we seem to have every year. What's your favorite dessert??
Fruit crisps like cranberry-apple are a little lighter than pie. There's free online access to the Cooks Country version at www.cookscountrytv.com.
Maple desserts go well with a turkey dinner. Some sort of creme brulee or bavarian or mousse would be nice. Caramel is another good flavor for the typical T'day meal.
There's always room for jello, so they say ;^)
Here's one I posted on another board: (Finnish Vispipuuroa) http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/5693...
My fingers and brain do not always work in concert, so when you read "heavy cram" know that I mean "heavy crEam." :-)
It's truly our favorite finish...last year only half of a pie was eaten with ten people in attendance.
Paula Deen has a great Gingerbread Pumpkin Trifle recipe. I made it last year, and it was gone in no time. Everyone requested it again this year.
