Pecan Squares Recipe

Maple syrup is a staple breakfast item in our pantry. We usually use it as is to drizzle over pancakes and waffles, but since we had extra pecans for Thanksgiving, the girls and I prepared pecan squares flavored with our favorite syrup.

The topping is made of a mixture of maple syrup, of course, orange zest, brown sugar and loads of pecans. I usually bake these squares during the Christmas season.

Pumpkin Banana Cupcake Recipe

Little Aria asked to see one of her favorite classmates, Colin, on a playdate. Aria can be very detail-oriented and asked if we could prepare mini cupcakes for the occasion. To make the sweet treat a lot more playful for the children, I topped the cupcakes with icing and sugar cookie letters.

The cake part is made with mashed bananas and pumpkin and I used an alphabet cookie cutter set. Aria helped out all through the baking process and she loved it. Colin loved the cupcakes too, and I was amazed to see he knew his alphabet as well. Isn't it impressive at only the tender age of three? It was so precious to watch them have so much fun!

I'm planning to bake the same larger-version cupcakes on Thursday

This is a sample of the desserts I prepared for Thanksgiving over the past few years. We haven't decided which ones are going to be served this Thursday, but one thing we know for sure is that there are going to be plenty of sweets on the table!

I also suggest trying a pumpkin version of the sweet potato tarte almandine I published in my first cookbook, Haute Potato.

Pumpkin Marshmallow Butterscotch Oatmeal Bars Recipe

Pumpkin Marshmallow Butterscotch Oatmeal Bars

11.15.13 by Jackie

These sinfully scrumptious pumpkin marshmallow butterscotch oatmeal bars may be beautiful to look at and a bit messy to eat, but they were a huge hit at our house. First, I prepared a chewy oatmeal-brown sugar crust for both the base and the topping. For the filling, I selected Thanksgiving-related items such as pumpkin purée, oozy marshmallows, decadent butterscotch chips and chocolate chips.

This sweet treat is definitely going to be part of our Thanksgiving menu. When I asked for the family's feedback, all I heard was "more". You might also want to prepare a batch for the morning following Thanksgiving; these winning bars would be a perfect brunch contribution as well.
