The Sweet Side of Gathering

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!
