Pumpkin Maple Pots de Creme with a Maple Bourbon Whipped Cream
This was my year to host Thanksgiving for the first time. I was completely thrilled for the challenge; yet petrified of cooking for my picky family. I wanted to try new dishes, but I knew I had to stick pretty close to the traditional favorites to make everyone happy.
Everyone in my family seems to think pumpkin pie is completely necessary for Thanksgiving. That's great. But, unfortunately, I've always kind of hated it. Pretty sure it's a crust thing. I generally take a courtesy piece, but find myself looking for more whipped cream to cover it with.
Yes, it was my year to cook which meant I had the power to say no to pumpkin pie. This is my humble, yet I must say, fabulous, take on the old Thanksgiving classic.
