Thanksgiving and My Annual Holiday Cookoff At My Home.

Simple Thanksgiving recipes makes it great for us who like to spend more time in preparing the foods for our family.

I have once again sorted through my recipe cards for the annual Holiday cookoff at my home.

1). Sweet Potato Pie (Traditional Southern Recipe)

2). Pecan Pie (Traditional Southern) with 'secret ingredient' and
3). Grandmother's Christmas Cake a recipe handed down by my m-i-l. I have never seen another recipe like this so it remains a secret (hidden in my recipe card holder).

4). Butterscotch Pie (Paula Dean's) I am making it this year for my DH; I hope it will as good as his
Butterscotch Pie


1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups milk
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (9-inch) pre-baked pie shell
1/4 cup butterscotch morsels, plus more for topping
Whipped cream, recipe follows

In a large saucepan over medium heat, add sugar, flour, cornstarch and salt. Slowly add milk, constantly stirring until it thickens.
In a separate bowl temper 2 egg yolks by whisking in a small amount of hot mixture to bowl. Whisk in the eggs and add the butter and vanilla. Allow to cook for a few minutes.
Pour into a dish and refrigerate, allowing to cool. When ready, fill pie shell with butterscotch mixture.
Mix the butterscotch morsels into the whipped cream. Cover pie and garnish with more butterscotch morsels.

Traditional Christmas Cards: What are you doing this year? Are you considering NOT sending? Sending less? Or going with an email greeting? This year time is really playing a HUGE factor in my decision in addition to saving money.

I Am Thankful That:
