Pumpkin Pie Bars

Pumpkin Pie Bars

Delicious pumpkin bars that are not as cakey as blondies and not as dense and fudgy as brownies. They taste just like pumpkin pie, minus the crust. Hope that these help to hold you over until Thanksgiving dinner!

Maple Apple Pie

Maple Apple Pie

Lindsay gets crafty with this luscious maple-infused Granny Smith apple pie. Combining her passion for cooking and crafting, she eschews the traditional lattice crust and creates custom leaf cut-outs, resulting in a pie that just screams autumn. Yum!

Patty's Pumpkin Pudding Pie

Patty's Pumpkin Pudding Pie

from Pattycake

Today is Thanksgiving up in Canada, and it being the country I hail from, I get a bit nostalgic for the flavors and aromas that would always permeate the house on this particular day of the year. The highlight of Thanksgiving is of course the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. There would be turkey and stuffing with cranberry sauce, and plenty of side dishes, but it was always the dessert that had me hold back from getting completely stuffed during the main course. For you see, I absolutely LOVE pumpkin pie. 

Now, pumpkin pie is a wonderful thing, but there's another option which my wonderful partner and wife came up with a few years ago that takes the pumpkin out of the pie, so to speak, and it totally rocks my world. She calls it Patty's Pumpkin Pudding, but it's essentially a crustless pumpkin pie that will make your nose swoon and your taste buds soar with delight. Seriously, this stuff is like pumpkin nirvana.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

Apple Galette with a Yogurt Crust

Apple Galette with a Yogurt Crust

This is not just any autumn dessert. A closer look reveals not only fresh apple slices, but also a whole-wheat yogurt crust and a cinnamon-red chile topping. Sunita loves the "slight kick" the chiles "deliver through the sweetness." My vote? This recipe is truly sugar and spice and everything nice.

Blackberry-Blueberry Pie

Blackberry-Blueberry Pie

I think everyone is getting one last berry fix before fall...recipes packed full of summer berries are popping up everywhere this week! This gorgeous pie is no exception - it "highlights yummy summer berries and makes a fantastic base for a big scoop of vanilla ice cream." Sigh. That's the epitome of end-of-summer bliss!
