Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just over a week away? While I love spending time with family and reflecting on all that I have been blessed with, I must admit I really look forward to the food. I’m getting excited about turkey and mashed potatoes smothered in gravy, homemade cranberry sauce, fluffy rolls, and of course, pie. Lots and lots of pie.
It should come as no surprise that Thanksgiving dessert is just about the best thing ever for this pie lover. I may be stuffed full to the point of bursting, but you bet I can’t wait to cut into the beautiful pies waiting in the wings. If you’re still undecided about what sweet treat to bake for your Thanksgiving celebration, have no fear, I am here to help. First up, this beautiful cranberry and pear pie.
I’m a sucker for cranberries during the holiday season, and I put them in just about everything. Since a cranberry pie may be a little too tart for many tastes, I decided to pair cranberries with chunks of ripe pears. I love how they go together, the little bursts of tartness nestled alongside tender pears lightly spiced with cinnamon, and all sandwiched by flaky crust. If you’re looking for a fruit pie to serve at your holiday table, this is it!
