Thanksgiving desserts and sides
Looking to change things up a bit this year and looking for some fresh ideas for sides and desserts... Thoughts?
These are my favourites:
These are all familiar enough that people won't balk but different enough to be special.
I have made this pie 3 times and I have found my perfect combo. CI vodka crust in a 9inch fluted pie pan, pre baked and filled as per the recipe. Perfection!
Everyone loves this side dish. It is different and very indulgent.
I would also serve a green vegetable, brussels sprouts or green beans.
braised red cabbage*
creamed onions or spinach*
sauteed green beans*
Twice baked sweet potatoes
chicken liver mousse crostini with carrot jam
horseradish and chive cottage cheese*
marinated white beans with onions and garlic*
homemade egg noodles with gravy
pumpkin mousse cups
pumpkin chocolate chip bread
apple ginger sorbet
candied pecans in phyllo tartlets filled with mascarpone
I have made/eaten at Thanksgiving the ones with stars.
I made this Cranberry-Walnut "pie" (really more like a big cookie), last year for Christmas,
Ridiculously easy and truly delicious.
Thanks to the CH'r who posted it last December. Sorry I forgot who you are.
I'll probably make it again for Christmas this year.
(We are hopelessly hidebound to the same T-giving menu every year. Desserts are apple and pumpkin pies unless we are having so many guests that we can add a 3rd choice. This year with 4 guests total, 2 pies seems plenty.)
