Are you ready for fall recipes? I'm completely in the mood for soups, and warm breads and desserts. Mmmmm. . . .
And Thanksgiving is coming up soon too!! That makes me VERY excited. How can I not love a day where I can eat ti my heart's content? This is one of my new favorite pies, and it's on Captain Jax's small list of pies he will eat--Regular pumpkin pie is on the top of the list.
The combination of cheesecake and pumpkin into a pie form is wonderful, and gives your mouth a perfect creamy fall combination. Top with whipped cream and it's enough to make you sigh in contentment.
Thinking about pie has made me curious. . .what's your favorite pie?
