Karl’s Pumpkin Pie with Grand Marnier Whipped Cream

What is a Thanksgiving feast without pumpkin pie? Although I recently made a similar pie for Jan’s new brother, there is always room for improvement. I found real pumpkin for this one and I decided to stir in the crystallized ginger, instead if just sprinkling it on top.

Jan’s Persimmon Pumpkin Pie

Adapted from a Giada de Laurentiis recipe

Jan loves persimmons and she loves pie. As usual, she tied to make it healthier and her own. While this dessert may not have been in keeping with the theme of my Indian feast, who cares? It was a great pie!

Jan’s Brown Butter Pumpkin Pie

Adapted from SJ Mercury News – originally from Emily and Melissa Elsen, “The Four & Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book”

Jan usually makes the desserts at our Sunday meals. Sometimes these desserts are within the theme of the meal. Other times they are just whatever strikes her fancy on the day. Either way, she will find a recipe that is close to what she wants and then she will adapt it “on the fly.”
