Thanksgiving Pies Worth Making Room For (No Matter How Full You Are)
There’s only one way to end a holiday meal: with a dessert that’s just as satisfying as the main event. From the unexpected, like Chocolate Whiskey Pecan Pie, to the old standbys, like Sweet Potato Pie, we’ve got a dozen dessert ideas that’ll leave your guests wanting just one more sliver.
- Make an invitation list.
- Send invitations.Turn pink note cards into invitations with an appropriately tempting message (try “Sugar and spice, and everything nice, that’s what this party is made of”). Or write all of the information on a blank recipe card, and tie a bakery-string bow through a hole punched in the corner.
- Buy decorations.Pick up some doilies on which to display each of your desserts (and stacks of plates). Pink paper cupcake liners make cute decorations, too. Cut small slits through the center of the liners and poke bulbs from a string of white holiday lights through. You can drape the string along a mantel or a table’s edge.
