Your family will enjoy these easy Thanksgiving desserts from Sarah.
This is a recipe my mom always used for our family’s Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. I’m sure this recipe was originally printed on the side of Libby’s pumpkin puree many decades ago. I especially like using this recipe because it uses regular milk, rather than evaporated. It also tastes great!
This is my go-to recipe when entertaining. Everyone loves scones, and you can prepare and freeze the dough weeks in advance. The recipe was adapted from a cherry scone recipe published by the Culinary Institute of America.
1.Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Add the dried cranberries and orange zest, and toss together.
2.Add cream and stir together until just mixed.
3.Gently press the dough into a 10-inch round or 10-inch square cake pan that has been lined with parchment paper. Cover with another sheet of parchment paper. Freeze until firm, at least 2 hours.
4.Preheat the oven to 350F. Thaw the dough for 5 minutes at room temperature. Turn it out of the cake pan onto a cutting board, removing parchment paper. Cut into wedges and place on a baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
5.Bake the scones until just golden, about 30 to 40 minutes. Cool scones on the baking sheet for a few minutes.
6.Mix the milk and confectioners’ sugar to make a glaze. Brush on scones while they are still warm. Scones can be served warm but taste best after glaze has soaked in overnight.
