Thanksgiving Recipes

This week's SaS theme is Thanksgiving DESSERTS!!  Obviously one of my favorite things.  I love some turkey and stuffing...but then bring on the sweets :D

I've made both of these in previous years, and thought they were pretty yummy so I thought I'd share.  They both came from

Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon salt

2.In a large bowl, combine pumpkin, apple butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir in eggs and evaporated milk. Pour into prepared pie shell.

3.Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted 2 inches from the center comes out clean. Sprinkle streusel topping over the pie (see #4), and bake for an additional 15 minutes.

4.To make the streusel topping: In a small bowl, combine butter, flour, and 1/3 cup brown sugar. Stir until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans.
