While magazines are filled with unusual Thanksgiving dessert suggestions (Spiced pumpkin cheesecake! Quince crumble! Apple maple upside down cake!), I'm the type of gal who like apple pie and pumpkin pie, served with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream respectively. For our dinner we're going to try a Bourbon Pumpkin Pie recipe from the November issue of Gourmet magazine (the last issue they ever published), which is about the farthest I would stray from simple, Thanksgiving classics. Our second pie will be an apple pie with a crumble top -- a best of both worlds solution for those who like pie crust and those who like the crumb topping of a crisp. What about you, dear readers? What will you be baking for Turkey Day?
