We celebrated our ex-pat Thanksgiving on the the 15th at a friends. I think we had 20 people or so. I made the stuffing and rolls. I did the stuffing in a slow cooker and was really pleased with the result. It was a great day but seems so long ago now! I am pondering Christmas dinner.

Happy Thanksgiving, my friends!

That butterscotch pumpkin pie that I made was a hit, and most people wanted the recipe...until I began to describe how to make it! It really isn't that difficult - it that caramelization of the sugar, twice in this version, that puts them off making it, yet it's not complicated. Here is the original recipe from several years ago, that I made the filling from:

And this is the recipe from this year, which I took the crust from, and the candied hazelnuts idea:

The only thing I would do different next time would be to make the candy for the topping, but put it in a zip-loc, and sprinkle them on as serving, rather than putting it on before hand. The candied part of it sort of liquefied on top of the pie on spots, done in advance.

Dave,

Looks really nice. So it wasn't too sweet after all?

I was abandoned by all but immediate family this year. We had turkey, mash, gravy, dressing, roasted sweet potatoes, and pumpkin custards (aka pumpkin pie without the crust).

Your pie looks amazing, Dave. Way better than Bon Appetit's!
