Aren't the fall leaves the best!
This is a pic I took last year around this time.
I can't believe that Thanksgiving is TWO days away. I have been looking forward to this holiday because it is by far one of my favorites. I can't wait to load up on all of the yummy turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls, tenderloin, and pumpkin whoopies that I can fit into my body!!
Today was Jon's office Thanksgiving party (so we got a head start on all of the festivities) and we were in charge of cooking the turkey. I am not sure if you are familiar with German ovens...... but they are TEEEENY compared to the "normal sized" American ovens. Needless to say, it was definitely a chore to cook a 20 pound turkey in our oven, but somehow ladies and gents, we made it happen and I think it turned out great. All that was left were the bones, so I think we must have done something right!
I have been meaning to share this new recipe with y'all for a while now, so without further ado, here's a Double Layer Pumpkin Pie thanks to Kraft.com! I made this on Saturday night and we are still eating on it, it's SOOOO tasty. And if you are looking for something easy to make for your Thanksgiving dinner look no further because here it is:
What you need:
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup plus 1 Tbsp. milk, divided
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed, divided
1 HONEY MAID Graham Pie Crust (6 oz.)
Note: I made my own graham cracker pie crust because the premade Graham pie crust was not big enough!!
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
2 pkg. (3.4 oz. each) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
BEAT cream cheese, 1 Tbsp. milk and sugar in large bowl with whisk until blended. Stir in half the COOL WHIP. Spread into crust.
WHISK remaining milk, pumpkin, pudding mixes and spices 2 min. (Mixture will be thick.) Spread over cream cheese layer.
REFRIGERATE 4 hours or until set. Top with remaining COOL WHIP just before serving.

I hope you guys have a wonderful Tuesday!
