Happy Thanksgiving

 Today's dessert of pecan pie is being served at the counter.  The Autumn blocks are from my sister.  The sugar mold and stand are from Trade Days in Canton, Texas. 

 I'm using my Johnson Brothers Friendly Village dessert plates.  The turkey was painted by my Aunt Kitty years ago.  

My Mom bought me this cute pilgrim couple.

These darling shapes on my pie are from a set that I won over a year ago from Cuisine Kathleen at her linky party Let's Dish!  The fun shapes are perfect for accenting a pie.  I love them so much, Kathleen!  Kathleen hosts her party every Wednesday.  Please be sure to visit!

The pie crust recipe is a new one and comes from Anita at Aunt Nubby's Kitchen. The recipe makes three pie crusts, which come in handy when you freeze them.  The dough is easy to roll as long as your surface is well floured. The recipe has vinegar and an egg in it and comes together very quickly.  If you'd like to try it, the recipe can be found here.
My pecan pie recipe can be found here.

  18. Happy Thanksgiving Kitty, you sure know how to dress a pie! Pecan is a favourite, among many, but I usually just make tarts for hubby and I.

  19. Pecan Pie is one of my favorites! Happy Thanksgiving.

  20. Happy Thanksgiving, Kitty! Your pecan pie looks amazing! The cut-outs decorating the top are really cute. I usually just make the tarts but I so enjoy the pie very much. Thanks for sharing at my HOME and have a lovely weekend, my friend.


  21. Hello Kitty,
    I wanted to come over for a visit. You must have been named after your Aunt? :)
    I pray you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones.

    Joy to you, Debbie

  22. It looks amazing, Kitty. But that pie has me drooling, YUM!
    Hope you have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving.

  23. I hope you had a happy Thsnksgiving dear friend!

  24. Hi Kitty, the cut out shapes are such a fun addition. I want to try this crust recipe some time. I have one called, 'never fail pie crust' that calls for canned milk instead of water. It's pretty good, but always like to try different techniques. I make my moms recipe for pecan pie. It has dark karo. Our family loves it. I'm sure yours is delicious also! Never met a pecan pie I didn't like. It's one of my two favorite pies. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
