I admit, I'm not crazy about pumpkin pie. I'd have to agree with my friend Elizabeth—"I always think I'm going to like it..." and then, like Elizabeth, I end up being a little disappointed. (She likes to say that the concept is good, but usually the execution is poor.) So why not try mixing it up a little this Thanksgiving? Martha has some great variations for pumpkin treats that just might make it a little more interesting.
Triple chocolate pumpkin pie. Yummo.
Pumpkin mousse pie.
Pumpkin spice cake with honey frosting. This looks absolutely delicious.
