So many delicious things to bake, so little time and oven space!  Here are some of our favorites for this Thursday’s feast: Pies (and Two Pie Crusts): You can finally settle the “pumpkin or apple” question with our Pumpkin Apple Pie that combines both ingredients in one pie! A Fresh Take on Apple Pie Pumpkin Apple Pie Southern Chocolate Pecan Pie Vegan Pumpkin Pecan Pie Classic Pie Crust Gluten-Free Pie Crust Cakes: These simple cakes feature seasonal flavors. Maple Walnut Applesauce Cake Fall Fruit Upside Down Cake Sweet Potato Apple Cake Pumpkin Chocolate Cake Tea Breads: Make these a couple of days ahead of time to have on hand for holiday visitors.  They also make lovely gifts. If you’re a guest rather than a host, consider baking a loaf for your host. Apple Almond Gingerbread Cranberry-Orange Tea Bread Honey Walnut Pumpkin Bread Spiced Gingerbread Cookies: You’ll ensure your popularity as a host if you have a cookie jar full of one of these crowd-pleasing cookie recipes.

I made the Pumpkin Apple Pie for all my holiday gatherings last year and it was a hit. It's probably on of my favorite pies.

Thanks for this great post. Let me add my family's FAVORITE Thanksgiving and Christmas dessert, the classic Kahlua Pecan Pie. We just made one this weekend, and I posted the recipe here http://worththewhisk.com/2010/11/20/the-original-classic-kahlua-pecan-pie/ Happy Holidays!

We didn't get pumpkin pie last year, and I was totally bummed out about that. I love pumpkin pie. But since we found out that our youngest has a dairy allergy, and my oldest and I both have an egg allergy, pumpkin pie was taken off the menu. Thankfully, though, I found some great vegan ingredient substitutions for the pumpkin pie, and I'm attempting to make one myself this year. *fingers crossed*
