Vote of the week: Favorite Thanksgiving dessert?
The first online poll I created was for Thanksgiving. It was for the Rocky Mountain News' website back in 1998 and the question was "Cranberry sauce: Whole berry or Jelly-style?" I ran that question again when I joined the Los Angeles Times and again
when I started the Vote of the Week here on ThemeParkInsider.com. (On TPI, jelly-style won, 60% to 39%.)
Since we now are coming to another Thanksgiving week (at least, here in the United States), I'm throwing another holiday-themed vote at you. Let's talk dessert this time.
I suspect that pumpkin pie will be the big winner this time, but I voted Sweet Potato. And I suspect there might be more than a few pecan pie and cheesecake fans out there, too. Even if you are not in the United States, feel free to vote on whichever dessert sounds best to you.
Let's debate our favorites, in the comments.
Don't get me wrong, I love apple pie. But, the question was about Thanksgiving. Pumkin is so autumn. While you can get pumkin pie out of season, I most associate it with fall and Thanksgiving. Although apple is also a fall fruit, you can get it anywhere, anytime.
Pumpkin is good, but I am always a sucker for Apple Pie when done right. A good mix of sweet and sour. Golden Delicious apples seem to make the best pies in my experience. We always pick some every fall from a local orchard. But pumpkin pie, cheesecake, and others are right there too.
Personally I love most of these listed, but I had to go with Pumpkin Pie. It is truly a favorite that is always served at my family's table on Thanksgiving. Though another that is not listed is my Grandma's homemade coconut cream pie which can only be described as heavenly.
Pumpkin pie; fresh but refrigerator cool, with a dollop of Cool Whip on top. It just doesn't get any better than that.
I like pumpkin ok but nothing beats a slice of apple pie warmed up with a big glass of icy cold milk. MMMM good.
I only like one pie and thats Pumpkin Pie! I always wait for this time!
Gotta agree with James Rao.
Pumpkin pie is amazing, but I had to choose pumpkin roll cake. To me, that is truly a once year dessert that only happens on Thanksgiving.
I love Pumpkin Pie. But, I really like Apple Pie as well. My apple Pie, warm with a slice of cheddar on top or warm served ala mode with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
You know the old saying, Ben: "An apple pie without some cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze." Whether you like it or not, that saying will now be running through your head all season....
Pecan pie, all the way. Can't beat mom's recipe.
Definatley Pumpkin Pie, with Cool Whip on top. In fact, anything Pumpkin flavored is absoultely delicious: Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Cheesecake, Pumpkin Cream Cheese, Pumpkin Ravioli, Pumpkin Soup, Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Coffee...mmmmm
There's a restaurant in downtown L.A. called "Zucca" (appropriately enough) that makes a fabulous pumpkin ravioli. It's run by the same group (Patina) that runs several restaurants in Anaheim's Downtown Disney.
Although my favorite is blackberry cobbler there is a gourmet apple pie at Publix that they sell during this time of year that has pecans and cranberries in it - it is really good!
