Pumpkin Cream Pie

I can’t possibly let you all finalize your Thanksgiving Menus without giving at least one more fabulous pie option for your spread. I’m always in charge of pies for the feast we have at my sister’s, and I get so excited planning the menu each year to see what needs to stay or what needs to go.

Because that’s my story folks ....more

I’m not going to pretend that cookies are actually graham crackers or anything like that, but I figure as long as I need keep them a secret the better right? He did learn what chocolate chips were after picking up a couple that had fallen to the floor from the making of these cookies, but I’m pretty proud of how I’ve managed to keep him in the dark this long ....more
