Best T-day desserts to wow the family?

skigirl | Nov 10, 2004 11:33 AM

I'm in charge of bringing desserts this year and will not be baking this year, given the sad excuse my current apartment has for an oven. The family Thanksgiving dinner is a prime opportunity for each member of our food-crazed and somewhat competitive bunch to attempt to one-up each other with our culinary (or, in my case, food shopping) know-how. I want to knock their socks off with something fantastic. There are, however, a couple of limitations:

1. No City Bakery. (V. good, but been there, done that.)
2. No Litte Pie Co. (Looks pretty and yummy apples, but lousy crust.)
3. Not Umanoffs (They and CB's cranberry almond tart are my backup in case all else fails).

Though I'll accept apple and pumpkin pie raves, I'm particularly searching for something other than this, particuarly something containing autumn-ish fruits.
