Mini Pecan Pies

Mini Pecan Pies

Are you planning your Thanksgiving menu? My sisters and I are, and we realized one issue we have every year is that we make way too many desserts. We typically prepare a pumpkin pie, pecan pie, chocolate pecan pie, carrot cake, and it goes on and on. No joke! I decided to try this recipe from an old Southern Living Magazine recipe for Mini Pecan Pies, and they were a hit! I tweaked it just slightly, and it’s heavenly. I figured this way, we have plenty of pecan pie, and now we really only need one more dessert. This also makes a great Christmas party idea, so I hope you like it!

 

New Thanksgiving, Christmas or Holiday Family Dessert: Chocolate Chip Pie

I was asked by the family this year to make something “chocolate” for dessert in addition to our Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Pie-I know, enough is enough. My good friend Sheila, who works for Favorite Recipes Press, gave me the book¬†“Recipes Worth Sharing” last week. I found this recipe for¬†Chocolate Chip Pie, and I had to try it. It’s so easy, and my daughter, Leigh, helped me make it in no time. We will be indulging in it on Thanksgiving, but it is wonderful anytime of the year (the kids love it!). Happy Thanksgiving to all my blog fans, family and dear close friends. You all know who you are!
