The countdown is on. Thanksgiving is just 12 days away. We’re lucky enough that we don’t have to host this year. However, we’ve never had to be bribed to bring a dessert. Against better judgement, we believe it’s never too early to start preparing! While searching through our recipe cards (truthfully Pinterest pins) we selected Pumpkin-Pear Crumble as the lucky winner in this Saturday’s bake off. We’ve lightened up this old favorite saving us plenty of calories to spend on what else-more treats! What are you making for dessert this Turkey Day? We’ll be over!
