Thanksgiving has got to be one of my very favorite days of the year. What’s not to love? Family, friends and food in one place? It doesn’t get better than that. I have lots of family who live close. So every holiday, and especially Thanksgiving, the house is filled with people. It’s great. We alternate where we celebrate each year, but we always tend to divvy up the cooking. The meal is always has your typical holidays favorites – turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, etc. etc. And of course there’s always apple pie for dessert. But with my family, dessert doesn’t stop there.
Everyone knows to save room for dessert on Thanksgiving. Along with apple pie, there are more pies and cakes and cookies and chocolates. We definitely go all out. One of my all time favorite desserts that my mom makes every Thanksgiving is Peanut Butter Pie. If you’re a peanut butter fan like me, you will absolutely love it. And it’s incredibly easy and quick to make. Did I mention that you don’t even need an oven? So if you want to impress (and/or trick) your family with your great baking skills, this is the dessert to make for Thanksgiving dinner.
