Here at the Almanac, Thanksgiving is all about comfort food. This year, we took some of the classic comfort food desserts you love and gave them a little twist. All recipes are courtesy of the EATS cookbook by The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

Warm Brownie Pie

We know Thanksgiving is all about pies, but how about a dessert option for those chocolate lovers? Presenting chocolate IN a pie! Voila! Pure chocolate heaven. Watch a video below on how to make our luscious brownie pie.

Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Kids will love this one! This pudding is like pumpkin pie, but with a firmer, denser texture. Skip making the crust and try this twist on the classic pumpkin pie. All you have to do once it’s done cooking is top it with whipped cream and serve!

Apple Crumb Pie With Carmel Sauce

“In bygone days, apple pie this good was grounds for a marriage proposal.” Who doesn’t love the mixture of cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla and of course, apples?! These ingredients are impeccably combined to not only create a dish that looks as good as it tastes, but will create the perfect aroma for an autumn get-together.

Creamy New York-Style Cheesecake

Cheesecake is always a favorite around the holiday season, our New York-Style Cheesecake recipe is absolutely to die for. The texture of this sour cream cheesecake is like velvet on the tongue. We will tell you one of our secrets: when blending cheesecake ingredients, make sure not to overdo it. Beating air into a cheesecake only increases the possibility that it will rise more than it should and then crack as it settles. We recommend going slowly to make sure it turns out well!
