Thanksgiving Baking & Forgetting Rule #2
I’m totally laughing at myself right now, so I just HAD to come over here and leave a quick note! Remember those basic rules of cooking that my mom taught me? Yep. I just went and totally blew #2: read the recipe all the way through BEFORE you begin!
I’m making Southern Living’s Ambrosia Pudding Pie for Thanksgiving. My pumpkin pies are already baked and cooling on a rack, so I started in on the ambrosia pudding pie. First step: make lemon curd. COOL! I’ve never made that before! I work through those steps and then read, “Chill for 4 hours or up to 3 days.” WHOOPSIE! Thankfully I have plenty of time this afternoon, so it’s all good, but this could have been quite the tragedy!
I’ll just let the curd cool whilst I move on to making Texas Sheet Cake Cookies. I won’t make them too big this time.
If you still need a quick, delicious pumpkin pie recipe, I shared Grandma’s recipe here!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Let’s count our blessings whilst we prep for this great holiday!

Sounds like something I would do!
I’m planning to make my Uncle Lawton’s pecan pie this afternoon. I should share that recipe on my blog, huh?
You should DEFINITELY share! (Although I admit part of me really likes secret, family recipes!)
Keeping it real and simple this year – 2 loaves of french bread for dressing, apple cobbler and (of course) sweet potato casserole (my kids would skewer me if I forgot that one!) – not to mention the poor turkey. Like I said – real and simple! Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
Sounds lovely! (I’m a cornbread dressing girl, but who am I to argue with homemade French bread!) Happy Thanksgiving!
Yum yum and more yum! Thanks so much for sharing! I missed your blog that mentioned the Texas Sheet Cake cookies before. My goodness they look AH-mazing!!! How have I never heard of?!
You’re welcome, Jen! Thanks for stopping by! Texas Sheet Cake cookies are new to me too, and BOY are they yummy! Give them a try, and let me know what you think! Any special food treats on your table tomorrow?
