Thanksgiving 2014 Desserts

 The only dessert I should have made.

The only dessert I should have made.

Every year we make too many desserts, but usually they are all worth eating.  This year my mother-in-law's apple crisp and the black-bottom peanut pie were the only two we should have made. The mincemeat tart was cloyingly sweet, and the pumpkin bread pudding not sweet enough.  We salvaged the bread pudding quite nicely as a breakfast item topped with maple syrup.  The mince pie......I just threw half of it away.  The peanut pie recipe is here.  Be forewarned, the crust recipe made nearly double the amount needed.  I just multiplied the filling by 1.5 and made two pies--one 8" and one 9".  According to Marcus Samuelsson, the pie's creator, it reminds him of a Snicker's bar.  Instant family favorite, definitely in the rotation.
