Every year for Thanksgiving, my sister makes the Ghirardelli chocolate pecan pie for dessert (http://www.ghirardelli.com/bake/recip...) and it's always a hit. I'm tired of her being the baking star. Can anyone recommend a dessert which will steal the show? The requirements are:
1) It should be at least vaguely Thanksgiving-y;
2) It should both look impressive and taste delicious;
3) I should be able to make it at least several hours in advance and serve it with minimal prep (warming it up is ok.
Please help me in my quest to win this sibling dessert throwdown!
