Holiday Recipe Linky Party

I am super excited that Thanksgiving is only a few days away! That means my sisters and their families will be in town soon! We are all meeting over at my  mom's house for Thanksgiving this year. Usually, my husband and I travel around to visit both sides of the family. This year, I am in charge of desserts. I love making something sweet! I will make a pie or two along with a tray of cookies. One of my favorite desserts is one that I have made at least once a year for Thanksgiving for over 15 years. I believe it originally came from a Kraft recipe? I was never a fan of pumpkin pie, but with some chocolate, I love it! I checked to see if it's online, and I found it!

More than 5 years ago, I decided to change it up from pumpkins to cranberries. Cooking Light had a lighter delicious version of a white chocolate cranberry speckled cheesecake. It takes time to make it, as it calls for a homemade yogurt cheese... but it is well worth it! It looks plain, but I decorate it with a dollop of whipped cream. Delicious!

Yesterday, I made some delicious pumpkin cookies. I was too tired to roast the pumpkins. So today, I found an easy and delicious recipe that uses pumpkins. I roasted a small pumpkin in my oven and blended the flesh in a blender with some broth instead of using canned pumpkin. This is a creamy hearty soup! I think it will be delicious with leftover turkey too! Click below to see the original recipe.
 
 
 
This year I am thinking of making something different, as I like to change it up every so often. So, I am definately on the look out for another pumpkin dessert idea. If you would like to join in on the holiday cooking, check out this linky:
 
 
Happy Thanksgiving!
