My vote would be for sweet potato pie and cheesecake with cranberry. I offer some other suggestions; sometimes I think a variety is better than just all pies.

Rich bread pudding (comfort food)
Maple cake layered with pralines (I LOVE all things MAPLE!)
Fruit tart (really beautiful for a special table)

PA....the others are all busy at their Thanksgiving day...you see in Canada we had ours so I could leave time to come to yours....you've got the desserts covered maybe I could bring some Canuck beer???
The maple/cranberry topping sounds wonderful!!! Of course you have to have apple pie and I agree with the other choclaholics....choclate meringue pie to finish!!! Pst :D

pst1can, with entertaining our families all weekend, I'll need that beer--come on down!

I think I've probably decided on the apple pie, cheesecake, and chocolate meringue pie. I'll just "owe" my dad a pumpkin pie for Christmas.

Life would be easier for us foodies if magazines would do their Thanksgiving issues in September or October. By the time I got my mags in the mail the last couple weeks I had my menu planned, but as I read through them, I come up with more and more recipies I want to include!

Hi all.

I'm new here, but I had to post the link to this recipe, because not only is it delicious, but if I don't make this every Thanksgiving, people actually whine! That's how good it is. Unless someone asks for a pumpkin pie, this is what I bake instead. It's called PUMPKIN ROLL CAKE WITH TOFFEE CREAM FILLING AND CARAMEL SAUCE. If you don't like the flavor of rum, you can always substitute something else, or leave it out completely. Also, I make my own caramel sauce instead of buying it.

http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/re...iews/views/911

In addition to the Pumpkin Roll, I make a simple deep dish apple pie with a lattice crust...but after the pie is filled with the 'requisite' apples, sugars, flour, cinnamon etc.., a small bit of sauce containing brown/white sugar, water, butter and cinnamon is cooked down, then poured over the lattice before it's baked. It's incredibly good!

I also put together some kind of fruit ambrosia for the calorie watchers, and of course, a pecan pie...with a white and milk chocolate drizzle on top.

By the way, the link to the Tropical Carrot Cake is now a part of my Thanksgiving dessert (or 'anytime' dessert) repertoire! Thank You!

I made one a couple years ago, recipe from 5 Ingredient Fix. I did add some other stuff to the filling. It was outstanding. Will have to dig out that recipe.
