Turkey Day 2K10

There was much to be thankful for this year on Thanksgiving. I know that soon it will begin to feel like we never had any holidays without her, but for now it's fun to mark each new holiday as a special day for our family.

Emma fit right into our traditional Thanksgiving dinner at the diner. Here she is posing with the annual pineapple turkey. She was very confused by it, but we assured her that it was OK to touch it and sit for a photo-op.

Although this will be her first and last turkey day without partaking in the deliciousness of food, I don't think she minded that much since she seemed to enjoy her meals yesterday. Larry wanted to put some gravy on her lips and I wouldn't let him, but I really don't think she would have preferred it over the wonderful contents of that bottle that she loves so much.

However, I do think that she did miss you on the deliciousness of the dessert I prepared this year. An old favorite of Larry's which I have recently learned how to make - Tollhouse Cookie Pie. And because frozen pie crusts are sold in packs of two, we'll be enjoying a second pie all weekend long, yum :)

Toll House Cookie Pie Recipe

  • 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup (6 oz.) NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels


PREHEAT oven to 325° F.

BEAT eggs in large mixer bowl on high speed until foamy. Beat in flour, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Beat in butter. Stir in morsels. Spoon into pie shell.

BAKE for 55 to 60 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between edge and center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. We love to serve with vanilla ice cream although the recipe suggests whipped cream
