It also won't surprise you, especially after looking at the picture, that my brother Dave was a special guest at this meeting. Dave LOVES pie and we spent at least three late-night facetime convos this month discussing and poring over recipes in preparation for this night.
We had an amazing spread. Dave was in heaven, calling it "the best Thanksgiving EVER" (who needs all that turkey stuff?). And while there was a winner, there were at least 4 runners-up so it was very close. I will be posting the winning recipe, the ones I made, and maybe some others so let me know if you want one in particular. November is the month to get your pie game ON!
Pumpkin Banana Mousse Tart
Garden Apple-Raspberry Pie with Gruyere Cheese Crust
Lemon Cream Cheese Tart
Caramel Apple Pie with Praline Crunch
Grapefruit Meringue Pie
Cranberry Cream Pie
(a Kari & Dave collaboration and my favorite of the evening)
....and the winner of the evening....
(just look at that crust!)
