This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie was a special recipe, just for Thanksgiving. You can find the full recipe at La Casserole Carree or on pg. 321 of Dorie Greenspan’s famous cookbook, Baking: From My Home to Yours.
Unfortunately, I was so busy with other Thanksgiving prep that I did not take pictures of the pie as I was making it. It was easy to make with basic Thanksgiving pie ingredients.
We celebrated Thanksgiving at my mom’s house with my cousins. The food was good and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
My pie received mixed reviews. My cousin, Kelly, thought it was “strangely good”. And my mom ate it and thought it was fine. My piece was good, but I think I would have preferred to have plain pumpkin, like everyone else, who was afraid of my “special” pie.
This one probably won’t become a Thanksgiving staple at our house. But it was good and a different twist on classic Thanksgiving flavors.
