Save the best for last this Thanksgiving with a Graham Cracker Crust Pumpkin Pie. The silky pumpkin custard sits atop a crumbly graham cracker crust that’s prepped in a fraction of the time of pie dough. Simple, sweet and lightly spiced this pie is perfect with a dollop of whipped cream.
Seize the day, they say, like it’s an effortless act. Let me tell you something, it’s not. I tried seizing the day but didn’t have the energy so I poked it with a pie server instead. Even that was too strenuous, for me and the kitchen utensil.
Pie servers are not meant for jousting, fencing or any other medieval funny business. Their work is serious stuff. Like a stretcher that transports critically ill patients from an ambulance to an ER, pie servers transport sliced pie to your plate.
Basically, they’re the essential workers of the dessert world.
Without pie servers we’d be eating from communal pies like savages. And as fun as it may sound to fight your foes for a bite of pie, we’ll never see it play out with social distancing mandates. In the meantime, my fellow Americans will consume pie divvied out with a pie server like civilized adults.
Now that prime time is upon us for pie season, I’m ready to serve up everyone’s must-have for Thanksgiving dessert: pumpkin pie. My spin on the silky, smooth classic sits atop a crumbly graham cracker crust prepped in a fraction of the time as traditional pumpkin pie.
Homemade and the holidays go together like pumpkin pie and whipped cream. I hope you enjoy all of the above with your family and friends this Thanksgiving.
