When you think of desserts on Thanksgiving what comes to mind? Most likely pumpkin pie, right? I know that people really really really love their pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving but for me I find it to be a little drab. This year I was in charge of desserts (which I usually am) and my family knows when they place that responsibility on me I don't stick to traditional. Our menu included a crisp apple pie with a dutch crumbled top, a delectable pumpkin crunch cake, and a pumpkin swirl cheesecake with a gingersnap/pecan crust. Yum.
You see, pumpkin can be transformed into a delicious masterpiece, why settle on plain pumpkin pie? So, without further ado:
