Pick my Pie

Help me pick my pie

Thanksgiving already? I can’t be the only one who thinks 2011 went by in a speedy blur. But  here it is, in a few days, and all I know is this:

I’m not making a turkey this year.

I’m going to make a pie. Probably pumpkin. But maybe an enhanced pumpkin pie. I don’t know and I’m too frazzled to decide.

Which is where you all come in.

Below is a poll with tiny urls (I tried to do hyperlinks, but bumped up against my technical abilities. Be grateful I got a poll on this page at all).  All are from established name food blogs, so please copy and paste into your browser and take a read.  Then vote for the one you think I should attempt for Thanksgiving.

It won’t be easy. They’re all very worthy.

I’ve always opted for pecan pie because I’ve never liked the texture of pumpkin pie. I voted for the first one because of the brandied whipped cream (now that would make ANY pie yummy!). But you can’t go wrong with a pumpkin cheesecake. Or, how about a pumpkin tart with a shortbread crust and a lush topping of toasted pecans and salted caramel?

Dang, Jamie! How about coming over and helping me make that bad boy? 🙂
