Pumpkin Chocolate Swirl Pie

It’s the best week of the year: Thanksgiving week!

Short week, long weekend and more pie than you know what to do with. JK. We’re obvi going to eat it.

What dish are you in charge of at your Thanksgiving dinner this year? The BF and I are heading to both of our families this year so I’m on the hook for six (!) pies. Seven if you count our post turkey day friendsgiving. Good thing I find pie making pretty therapeutic. (Except when I burnt the butter twice today…)

Cold Brew Coffee Pie

Fellow caffeine lovers—today is a monumental day. Pour yourself a big cup cause it’s National Coffee Day. Not sure who made that designation…if it were me, I’d give coffee at least it’s own month. But nevertheless, as loyal coffee fans we can’t miss out on an opportunity to do what we do everyday celebrate coffee.

I’m taking it a step further today (surprise, surprise) and giving you this glorious cold brew coffee pie. Since you’re already drinking your morning cup, you might as well switch it up with an afternoon coffee cocktail too.

Toasted S’mores Pie

It’s the first full week of fall, and it definitely feels like it in Chicago. There’s the slightest chill in the air which has me dreaming of apple cider doughnuts and pumpkin picking.

Just because bonfire season is ending doesn’t mean we have to wait for s’mores until summer. Snuggle up with a cozy sweater and your kitchen torch, cause we’re about to eat s’mores pie all year long.
