  • Pistachio cake is a favorite.  Here's one I made and took to work for a Thanksgiving pot-luck, two years ago.

    This is one of my pie transport boxes.  I've built two.

    They are approximately 14" square by 18" tall.  Five shelves.  The bottom shelf is double height for deep-dish pies or tall meringue toppings.

    I typically make 3 pumpkin pies, plus a variety of others.  I do a pie swap with a friend, too - she makes an extra key lime pie, and I give her one of mine.

    Other pies may include:
    deep dish apple
    deep dish pear
    apricot
    custard
    rhubarb
    pecan
    black raspberry crumble

    This is the recipe for a date-pecan pie I made last year that was a big hit, and I'll be making again this year.
  • Apple-pear-cranberry crostata.

    Is that a thing with plans available through the interwebs?
  • Pot de creme.
    Not traditional, but easy (if a little messy).
    Wins hearts and minds. Utterly unsporting in a romantic setting, but very popular at the office party (I use plastic shot glasses - it is crazy rich).

    Nope.

    Designed it myself and cobbled it together with some basic carpentry.  You need thin finish plywood, nice pieces of 5/8"x1/2" wood (true dimensions), and some of those outer-corner pieces to cover up the rough edges.  A box of screws, some wood glue, and polyurethane to finish it off.  Clamps, drill, circular saw, sandpaper.

    Make sure that you put guides into the box for the shelving both above and below the shelf, so that the shelves are locked in place when you're driving.

    You can cut hexagonal openings for the pie tins (drill at the 6 corners, then use jigsaw or very carefully use circular saw), or circles if you've got a nice adjustable hole saw.

    i added an extra piece of 1x3 across the top where the handle goes in.  The box shown has a sliding door - my second attempt, I put it on hinges instead.  I think I like the hinges better, even though they are finicky to get lined up correctly for drilling and require extra pieces of 1/2x5/8, making the box bigger.

    I'm going to sit down with sketchup today and see what I can come up with.
  • Good ol' pumpkin pie is enough here.
  • Can't stand pumpkin and I am on dessert duty this year for a pared down group of 4 immediate family. Will be checking in for ideas.

    Pecan pie, cheesecake, or Hummingbird cake are good options.
  • I have a recipe for pumpkin pie with ginger snap crust I've been wanting to make
  • johnny_vegas: Pecan pie cheesecake with a caramel-bourbon sauce


    I want so much to make that, but it's hard to justify for just two people.
    Stupid 2020.
  • Maybe you local KT farkers know this:

    https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1​0​20431-kentucky-butter-cake

    However there is one critical change - everywhere that says "extract" use bourbon.  Also, double the amount of sauce.  10 out of 10 on the "easy but kills" scale.

    It's actually my #2 but my #1 is a Rose Levy Beranbaum pumpkin cheesecake that is complicated as fark.  Every time I make it I want to punch her in the face.

    It's like the saying, "Any pizza can be a personal pizza.  You just have to set goals and believe in yourself."
  • Grandma's recipe pecan pie. Crust is made with lard, as the universe intended.

    Scoop of quality vanilla bean ice cream.

    Bourbon slush, big glass.
