I remember hearing about Banoffee Pie decades ago – but what I didn’t know then was just how EASY this is to make. And it’s soooo Caramelly Toffee Banana goodness. A shortbread crust, a good thick layer of Dulce de Leche, bananas and whipping cream touched with coffee. All those wasted years…

Two Layer Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie

Another pie? Why not!? Because I already made my Fave Pumpkin Pie last week, and then a Caramel Creme Pumpkin Pie extravaganza. So for actual Thanksgiving? A Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie. The bottom layer is a lush cream cheese & the top, a more sedate pumpkin pie layer. The Dulce de Leche Whipped Cream? It stole the show.

Caramel Cream Pumpkin Pie

This year I was looking for something a bit different to round out the Thanksgiving dessert table – and here it is. A two layer pumpkin pie, On the bottom, a rich caramel custard, and on the top a cinnamony pumpkin mousse. And it’s all topped off with an extravagant layer of toasted meringue.

Polenta Budino with Plum Marmellata

I could hardly believe my eyes as I turned the pages of this month’s Bon Appetit…and saw this recipe in the R.S.V.P. section. A dessert from the famed Babbo in NYC. Now, I don’t know about you, but I may never have a chance to eat at Babbo, but this? This dessert is easy to pull off.
