Thanksgiving Pies

Thanksgiving is definitely my favorite holiday of the year because it is centered around family and of course, food. I decided to make four pies this year breaking my record of three pies last year. I made my usual apple and blueberry pie and decided to make two new pies – cran-raspberry and chocolate pie. My favorite pie you ask? That’s a tough one because I really liked all of them, but if I had to choose one I have to go with blueberry.

I really love cranberry sauce because I love tart things and decided to incorporate cranberries in my dessert this year. I added raspberries for sweetness and spiced up (or I really should say herbed up) my pie with a little chopped fresh rosemary. Seriously, the rosemary adds a nice kick. I winged the chocolate pie, adding cocoa powder and brown sugar to the pie dough and whipping up some egg whites and incorporating some melted dark chocolate. I will provide a recipe later.
