You just can’t beat traditional biscuits with a Thanksgiving meal. My recipe is included with my Biscuits and Sausage gravy but they kinda look like these when you don’t have the gravy ladled over the top.

THANKSGIVING DESSERTS

I recently published a pumpkin recipe roundup and one of my favorites of the bunch is by Craig of Ruled.me. 

Pistachio and Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins

I really like this Pistachio and Pumpkin Chocolate Muffin because while it is simple it can, like a great little black dress, be dressed up or dressed down.  Have it “plain” with a great cup of coffee or after dinner dessert liqueur or add a dollop of sugar-free ice cream or whipped cream for an added treat! Heck add both! It’s Thanksgiving!
