Hello, dear readers! It’s been a while, I know. We’ve had a lot going on: planning for the holidays, getting ready for the holidays, and now making candy for the holidays! (It’s a busy time of year for us, these holidays.)
But I wanted to check in and say hello (hello!), Happy Thanksgiving (Happy Thanksgiving), and: are you sure you have enough dessert?
I mean, even Pete Wells agrees that the final course is the real deal.
Never fear! We’re here to help. Here’s a lil’ listicle for you with some of our favorite tried-and-true (and in a couple of cases, untried-but-intriguing) Thanksgiving sweets to ensure that no one will be able to stand up under their own power after dessert.*
*The true measure of a successful Thanksgiving, no?
Gluten Free Cranberry Curd Tart
You could make it with a standard shortcrust, if you don’t need it gluten-free; and just look at that stunning color!
Claudia Fleming’s Stout Ginger Cake
I don’t even really like ginger, but this cake is unbelievably delicious and tender. (It’s also the inspiration for our Stout-Gingerbread Caramels.)
Cranberry Pie with Thick Pecan Crumble
Jen made this Smitten Kitchen recipe for Joan’s birthday a couple weeks back, and everyone here at HQ went crazy for it.
Sticky Cranberry Gingerbread
We have yet to try this, but – as Joan puts it – “it’s everything I ever wanted.”
To all of you dear people: have a happy, happy Thanksgiving! We’re truly grateful for each and every one of you. Now go eat some dang pie.
