Thanksgiving is my most favorite holiday. Sure I love casseroles and fresh-baked rolls, but it's the desserts that are to die for. I don't have a huge sweet tooth, but I do have a ginormous desire to stir, mix, fold, fluff, roll, and bake any recipe I can find.

This year, I'm going to my fiance's house and have offered to bring some kind of dessert. Apparently they have a pumpkin pie recipe that they're bringing back into the dessert rotation, one with a meringue top, that sound divine, only no one has the recipe! Anyone have meringue-topping tips to share?

For now, I've been checking out the abundance of pumpkin pie recipes on I'll be honest, I've never made, or even tasted, pumpkin pie before, so I'm almost overwhelmed by the amazing array of flavor combinations there are out there. There's Classic Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Pie with Maple Cream and Sugared Pecans, Pumpkin Streusel Pie (pictured above), Soy Milk Pumpkin Pie, Gingersnap Pumpkin Pie, Cinnamon Streusel-Topped Pumpkin Pie, and even a Frosty Pumpkin Pie, served frozen.

The worst part? They all look amazing. What desserts do you most look forward to for Thanksgiving? I'm an apple pie girl, myself, but I'm looking forward to a big slice of pumpkin pie this year.
