Thanksgiving Dessert

You can’t have a delicious Thanksgiving feast without an equally delicious dessert to follow it! When I think of Thanksgiving dessert specifically, I think of pie. So, here are some vintage pie recipes for your perusal.

Lemon Cream Cake (Mrs Marin)

Although this is called lemon cream cake, it is actually a pie. It sounds like a lemon custard pie, which would be nice for a summer evening, chilled and topped with a bit of whipped cream. Delicious! I might have to make this for my mother’s birthday if she will let me. :-) And, although … Continue reading

Angel Pie

Maybe I chose this recipe because I call my daughter Angel Pie. I don’t know, but it sounds delicious and I will have to find an excuse to make it one of these days. This is reminiscent of┬ápavlova, which my friend who spent a year in Australia introduced to me. She makes the best pavlova! … Continue reading
