For Thanksgiving dinner this year, we’ve colored outside the lines and put together a fantastic menu. All the familiar ingredients in unexpected ways.
These savory-sweet cocktail cookies are simple to make yet pack a wallop of flavor. Set them out as a pre-dinner nibble when you want something fetching.
Pity the pilgrims. They hadn’t yet conjured this cranberry cosmo, which is a cinch to make and ensures Thanksgiving is a lot more tolerable. Sure beats mead.
Hate Brussels sprouts? Well, hate them no more. Here shaved sprouts are tossed with thin slices of pecorino and prosciutto and dressed with lemon and oil.
These corn bread batons bake up crisp on the outside, with a fine crumb on the inside, and ready to sop up as much butter or gravy as you wish.
The essence of autumn, this recipe juxtaposes tender root vegetables, crunchy Marcona almonds, nutty brown butter, and the lilt of lemon.
What’s an un-pumpkin pumpkin pie? It’s pie made with caramelized butternut squash, spices, and a splash of brandy. It’s subtly different than the classic yet still oh so perfect for Thanksgiving.
This sautéed onions, chestnuts, and bacon recipe is salty, caramel-y, and ideal-y as a Thanksgiving side dish.
This cauliflower gratin recipe from Dorie Greenspan is French comfort food, yet it wouldn’t be out of place on a distinctly American Thanksgiving table.
This stunning Southern belle and its dozen tiers—yup, 12—is astonishingly easy peasy to make thanks to a savvy cake-baking tactic.
Cinnamon is the solo act in this sophisticated but simple gelato. Creamy, indulgent, and complex tasting, this gelato is sure to become a new favorite.
An inventive riff on plain old greens, this inspired salad juxtaposes a sassy sherry vinaigrette with crisp green beans, tender cipollini, and—mmmm—bacon.
If you weren’t the one making this “cheesecake,” you’d probably never guess it’s dairy-free and vegan.
Made the old-fashioned way, this gravy is terrific on fried chicken and even better on mashed potatoes. Cross our hearts.
