Holiday Food Fest ~ Fall Desserts

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.


The Holidays are upon us. Only a few weeks until Thanksgiving and about 7 weeks until Christmas.  What are you planning to cook and bake?

Do you need some inspiration for a new dish? Well, you have come to the right place. For the next 6 weeks, every Thursday, 5 other fellow bloggers and myself are hosting the first ever, Holiday Food Fest. Thanks to Amy, from Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free for coordinating the festival! :)

Today, I’m sharing a Thanksgiving Fall Dessert with you, that is quick, easy and can be made ahead and frozen.

    I can imagine how fabulous this pie tastes! Gorgeous, too.

    Out of town and had to do all on my friend’s Mac (torture when you are used to a PC), so no HFF badge or direct link to this post (just your main site). I’l fix when I am home on Friday. :-)

    Can’t wait to see all the entries! Thanks, Liz!
