Thanksgiving Desserts


 Frozen Harvest Pie 

2 (9 inch) graham cracker crusts
1 quart Butter Brickle or vanilla caramel ice cream, softened
2 cups canned pumpkin pie mix
2 (8 ounce) containers frozen whipped topping, thawed

In large bowl, combine ice cream, pie filling, and 1 cup whipped topping.  Mix well.  Pour into crusts.  Freeze 15 minutes.  Spread remaining whipped topping over pies.  Freeze at least 2 hours.  Garnish with cinnamon and candy if desired. 


No Bake Pumpkin Pie

1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1(.25 ounce) packet unflavored gelatin  
2 eggs
2 cups canned pumpkin pie mix
1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker pie crust

In large saucepan, combine sweetened condensed milk, gelatin, and eggs.  Mix well.  Over medium low heat, cook mixture 10 minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Add pumpkin pie mix.  Mix well.  Pour into pie crust.  Refrigerate at least 3 hours.  Keep refrigerated until time to serve.

This no bake pumpkin pie recipe has a creamy texture instead of the firmer texture of the baked version.  When I tested it on friends, it was a big hit!  I should have made two pies, because almost everyone wanted seconds.

This year has gone so fast!  I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week. I have received a lot of requests for easy Thanksgiving desserts so I decided to re post two of my favorites.  I am having trouble deciding which one to make this year so I think I will make both.

My new cookbook is available at schools, businesses, hospitals, and book fairs in cities across the United States.  Be sure to pick up a copy or two, when you see them.  They make great gifts!

    This is great timing! I've been assigned dessert for this year so I will have to try one of these.
