Pecans. Chocolate. Bourbon. Dunno about you, but that’s sufficient to make us forget all about that other traditional Thanksgiving dessert. Pumpkin who?
This fetching cake contains sugar and spice and everything nice, yes, but it also has its share of sass. As in, sassafras.
Perhaps the easiest pie crust ever. Actually, we take that back. Definitely the easiest peasiest pie crust ever. No kneading. No rolling out. Really.
