November has finally arrived, in all of its warm-blanketed, crisp, cozy, Thanksgiving-filled glory, and we are HERE for it!
There are so many great things about this lovely month, one of them of course being FOOD.
Pecans are in season -- in fact, November is Georgia Pecan Month -- and we want to make sure you get the most out of the deliciously sweet, buttery nut.
Make some of these scrumptious fall desserts ASAP:
We sure hope this so-called "best pecan pie ever" brings happy tears to your eyes! Start now, make a ton of them throughout the month and eat them all yourself -- just to make sure you're ready for Thanksgiving, you know?
If you love pecan pie but want something a little more manageable and casual, make it in bar form!
Don't have the patience to bake a pie? Fear not! This cobbler can stand up to any complicated dessert, even though it's super easy. All you have to do is mix up the filling, bake, then mix up the topping and bake again. Easy as … pie?
This dessert is great if you'll be in a hurry, because you can make the crust well ahead of time, pop it in the freezer and then thaw it overnight before dumping in the filling.
This coffee cake is somehow both rich and light at the same time, with decadent spiced pumpkin and a nice layer of crunchy brown sugar and pecan streusel -- perfect for breakfast or dessert.
What's better than filling cream puffs with butter pecan ice cream? Talk about an upgrade.
If you love bittersweet desserts, allow us to introduce you to your new favorite toffee.
In case you ever have that weird, mysterious thing that we've never heard of before called "leftover pecan pie," you absolutely must throw a slice in the blender with ice cream, milk and your favorite bourbon. Oh, and if you can never manage to save an extra slice of pie (we don't blame you one bit!), take a shortcut and blitz up shortbread cookies, pecans and molasses like so.
