We can hear you shaking your heads from here...there's no dessert but pie on Thanksgiving, right? Well, we mostly agree.
Whether your favorite is pumpkin, apple, pecan or a little sliver of each, pie will always be queen of Thanksgiving desserts. But, this year, why not add another (dare we say lighter?) dessert to the harvest buffet?
(Okay, maybe you'll save it for the next day but still, it's delicious!)
