Little changes this year (from requests but still some old reliables...Tomorrow is my baking day...Pumpkin Pie (Libby's/Carnation of course), Chocolate Cream Pie, Dutch Apple Pie, Rice Pudding, Thanksgiving Themed Decorated Cookies.  Face it - Thanksgiving's all about the prepping/food!  Hope everyone enjoys their eating, get-together, Parade, tv shows, football and the entire Thanksigiving day!

Wow, Jeannine, you must be baking desserts for a small "Army" of family and friends! I too like to make all my old family recipes, especially for Thanksgiving. Occasionally I'll slip something new and different in, and my sons usually vote me down. LOL

Nellie, I'm sorry you're unable to enjoy the Thanksgiving preps as you would like to. I hope your being in the presence of family and friends will help.

Cooking for just 3 this year.  I invited a friend that has been helping around the house.
I will be keeping it pretty simple.  I plan on making a pumpkin dessert, not a pie but I am searching for one that is layered with Graham Crackers and I think a pudding that you mix pumpkin into.  Not sure...My stepdaughter used to make it and since she is no longer talking to us I can't get the recipe....if I find it great if not Plan B. 
I also want to make a French Silk pie but that might be a bit much.  Maybe a bar cookie I saw with almonds and almond paste for the great almond flavor I so love.

Nellie, can't you give instructions for your dressing?
If nothing else how is it made, I am always looking for a good recipe for a stuffing/dressing.  I will make it for you and eat it in your honor.....sending you all the calories!

We are going to my son and daughter in law's this year.  Usually, when I ask what I can bring, I get a list.  However, this year I was asked only for an apple pie.  Not a problem as my 16 year old grand daughter is making her "famous" chocolate pie, and another friend is bringing a pumpkin pie.  So, I will just sit back and enjoy!!

I could, but I won't do that
my son and d.i.l. are both working
she's bringing home the acct postings to do at home to make up time she missed when her mom(who also is not shopping or cooking) was in hospital last month for 10 days and at their home another 5 days

also my d.i.l. is not a cook        open cans mostly
they do make dressing , but not anything like mine   and always cooked until it resembles those crunchy bars
my son will be frying turkeys  and everything else is on him
maybe when I get the stitches out of my leg and it heals  (it's over an active part of my calf)      I and have seen the pain clinic on the 5th  I will make a small pan

I made two pumpkin pies today, and tomorrow, I will be making all sorts of things for my family. We keep things pretty simple - just my husband and our 3 boys (ages 10, 3 and 1). We used to celebrate with family, but since none of them want to get along with each other, we will keep to ourselves and enjoy new traditions with our kiddos! :) Our oldest loves to help make the dessert. Laughing I am hoping in a few years that the little two will enjoy helping me! :)

Here is the recipe that I made and loved. I got it on this site:
Pots of Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Cream Pie

Crust:
1 (1 1/4 cups) sleeve gram crackers, finely crushed
5 Tablespoons butter, melted

Filling:
1 can (15 oz) Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin
1 can (12 fl oz) Nestle's Carnation Evap. lowfat 2% milk, chilled
1 (3.4 oz.) box vanilla instand pudding and pie filling mix
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice  plus additional for dusting
1 (8 oz) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed and divided
1 can (13.4 oz) Nestle's La Lechera Dulce de Leche

Directions
Combine graham crackers and butter in small bowl.  Spoon about 2 measuring Tbs. into each of ten half-pint canning jars, custard cups and/or ramekins.  Pat crust down with back or side of measuring spoon. (I used a small gravy ladel since it was rounded and fit in the canning jar)

Combine pumpkin, evaporated mil, pudding mix and pumpkin pie spice in large mixer bowl; beat for 1 minute or until blended.  Fold in 2 cups of whipped topping.

To Assemble:
Warm dulce de leche in microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 15 to 20 seconds to soften; sir well.  Spoon dulce de leche on top of each crust. Spoon in about 1/2 cup pumpkin filling. Top with a dollop of remaining whipped topping and a dusting of pumpkin pie spice. Keep refrigerated at least 2 hours before serving.

Being with family and friends is the best dessert ever and calorie free.   Of course there will be some calories partaken of sometime during the day.

Tina, thanks this is pretty much the one I found.  I made a pie crust and put the cream cheese, whipped cream (won't use cool whip) in the base then made the pumpkin part.  Looks pretty good and from what I tasted for Quality Control it tastes good as well.  I also made a French Silk Pie from a recipe from Cooks Country or America's Test Kitchen.  That is going to be awesome!  I may have to do dessert first!
