After the record NINE pies I made last year on the day before Thanksgiving, this year’s seven pies didn’t seem like quite as much work!
We’re having our standard lineup, as follows:
This day is a lot of work, but it also makes the house smell like a bakery, so I can’t complain too much!
It took me about seven hours to make the nine pies we need for Thanksgiving this year. We’ll be enjoying caramel apple, cranberry-apple, chocolate hazelnut, pecan, s’mores, butterscotch, pumpkin, apple, and vanilla cream pie…but definitely not all at once!
As I always do the day before Thanksgiving, I spent the better part of today making pies. One for each member of the family, as is our tradition:
This year’s pie lineup:
- Ryan–Caramel apple
- Me–Spiced cranberry apple
- Turkey–Peanut butter cup
Chickadee did actually pick her pie this year, but I think pumpkin pie is the only one she really knows by name…I hope she’s happy with her choice!
As is our tradition, I made seven pies today…one for each member of the family:
Here’s the pie lineup:
- Ryan–Peanut butter cup
- Me–Wassail (cranberry apple)
- Ladybug–Caramel apple
Technically, Chickadee still can’t choose her pie flavor, since she doesn’t really have a favorite yet, so she was assigned pumpkin. Maybe next year she’ll pick her own!
