I can’t remember when I’ve been more excited about Thanksgiving y’all. I’m not really sure why. Maybe it’s because I don’t have to work(YAY!!), but whatever the reason I’m just embracing it ;). My family has a very traditional meal, and the menu doesn’t vary much from year to year. I mean, the classics are the classics for a reason, but I like to try at least one or two new side dishes and/or desserts. I’m not a huge pumpkin pie fan, but I do love me some apple pie (case in point –> here, here, here, or here)! This isn’t my first time combining classic pies either. Remember the Pumpkin Pecan Pie? Yum! I’m all about getting the best of both worlds! This pie combines two classics and will satisfy pumpkin pie lovers and apple pie lovers alike. Because maybe it’s not Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie, but who says it has to be only pumpkin pie?? Make your own rules =). Enjoy!
