As the day draws closer to Thanksgiving, I wanted to wish all of you who celebrate the holiday a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Since most of you likely have your menu already planned, I thought I'd share a couple of recipes that I had posted in the past which may come in handy after Thanksgiving if you bought an extra can of pumpkin that didn't get used or if you purchased too many fresh cranberries.
The first (for that unused can of pumpkin puree) is Pumpkin Pie Brioche. You can click on the link to be taken to the recipe. This brioche makes amazing French toast and would be wonderful if you have holiday weekend guests.
The second (for the bag of cranberries you did not use) is for Cranberry Liqueur. You can find the instructions by clicking on the link and the update when the liqueur was ready to drink by clicking here. This takes about a month to 'ferment' and makes a delightful Christmas cocktail. It would also be a delicious gift.
Safe travels if you are celebrating away from home and may your day be happy and all of your turkeys turn out perfectly!
That pumpkin pie brioche looks amazing!ReplyDelete
A very happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Susan.

Will definitely try this brioche, love all brioches, what a judicious choice of recipes!
Happy Thanksgiving, Susan! God bless you and your lovely family. I'd love one of those brioche right now!ReplyDelete
There are always those extra groceries! Brilliant, Susan - and even better is the fact that I have never seen that brioche recipe here... I have the pan, too - and it is ON "the" list! Cannot wait to make it!ReplyDelete
Happy Thanksgiving to you Susan! The Brioche sounds marvelous. JoniReplyDelete
Happy Thanksgiving Susan! Beautiful gallery of festive treats!ReplyDelete
Happy Thanksgiving Susan.ReplyDelete
Yes, on the Pumpkin Brioche! I normally bake honey rolls every TG, and I'll probably do the same again, this year. But no one ever said I couldn't have variety at my table, right?ReplyDelete
Everything looks so delicious and autumnal.
Susan, best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving to you and your little Mac pumpkin!
Wishing you a fabulous Thanksgiving Susan! That brioche is calling my name :-)ReplyDelete
happy thanksgiving and I just know you will have a super one with fab food hugsReplyDelete
Your pumpkin brioche looks magnificent! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!ReplyDelete
Happy Thanksgiving my dear! I definitely want that pumpkin brioche around!ReplyDelete
Dearest Susan, First I have to say that pumpkin brioche looks BREATH- TAKING and absolutely delightful :) I hope you and your family have a lovely Thanksgiving Day!ReplyDelete
Happy Thanksgiving Susan! That brioche is perfection; would love a taste.ReplyDelete
Oh I'm still so full from two Thanksgivings back to back that I don't know why I enjoyed this post so much. Perhaps it is because I'm feeling a little guilty about just chucking the pumpkins when I could bake them off and freeze them and make pumpkin brioche or something. The cranberry liqueur looks beautiful and sounds delicious.ReplyDelete
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm sure you had a delicious feast.ReplyDelete
I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving, Susan. I hadn't planned to do any baking this week but your pumpkin brioche is irresistible. I'm thinking of all sorts of delicious ways to use it.ReplyDelete
Love your photos..the brioche is wonderful and the beautiful liqueur is a great idea for Noël.ReplyDelete
My Thanksgiving is actually being celebrated this weekend :) But I'm thinking I should buy an extra can of pumpkin for that brioche! Looks delish.ReplyDelete
I've never heard of pumpkin brioche, I really like the sound of it! The cranberry liquor is such a pretty color-looks perfect for the holidays;-)ReplyDelete
I am going to have to try cranberry liqueur again. Years ago Martha Stewart had the recipe on one of her Thanksgiving specials. I made it, let it age in a lovely bottle, went to retrieve it the day before Thanksgiving, wherein I knocked it over, spilling it inside my cabinets. Sticky!ReplyDelete
Sounds like wonderful Thanksgiving treats. I have Brioche on my bucket list for cooking and definitely a touch of pumpkin would make it special. We have a favorite restaurant that makes their french toast with Brioche and ever since we had it there, I have wanted to try making my own. Hope you have a wonderful week.ReplyDelete
