Thanksgiving

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food? | Contributor Q&A

My favorite Thanksgiving food is pumpkin streusel bars. I started making the recipe a few years ago in hopes of combining a bunch of things everyone in my family enjoys into one dessert. The crust of the bars is gingersnap cookies; the filling is cream cheese, Greek yogurt and pumpkin; and the topping is a streusel made from oats, cinnamon and brown sugar. We eat this instead of pumpkin pie now, and no one has complained.

Pecan Pie | Thanksgiving Pie Showdown

1. Add 1 1/2 cups flour, salt and sugar (optional) to a food processor. Pulse 2 to 3 times until combined. 2. Scatter butter cubes over flour and process until a dough or paste begins to form, about 15 seconds. (There should be no uncoated flour). 3. Scrape bowl, redistribute the flour-butter mixture then add remaining 1 cup of flour. Pulse 4 to 5 times until flour is evenly distributed. (Dough should look broken up and a little crumbly).

Pumpkin Pie | Thanksgiving Pie Showdown

1. Whisk together sugars, flour, salt and spices. Set aside. 2. Beat the pumpkin, evaporated milk and eggs. 3. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and beat until combined. 4. Place filling, covered, in the fridge while you prepare the crust. Chill for at least 30 minutes, though it’s best made a day in advance.
