Thanksgiving is a holiday that focuses on tradition and family. It seems like every year we go to the same house and eat the same food with the same people. As a person of routine, I love tradition. I order the same food at the same restaurants. I try to maintain as much consistency in my schedule as possible. I love comfortable and familiar. But when it comes to Thanksgiving, I like to add a little something different each year.
I’ve found the perfect balance of tradition and excitement: the traditional Thanksgiving meal with non-traditional desserts. So let’s talk about the meal. You have your turkey, obviously. And your stuffing. Or is it dressing? Sweet potatoes AND mashed potatoes because, duh, potatoes. Gravy. Maybe you somehow sneak a vegetable in there. And then the only color to the whole meal: cranberry sauce.
Everything else is shades of brown. Brown brown brown. So to keep with this theme of brown, I’m giving you a brown dessert that you can add to your menu. It’s easy and fun to make, and will really impress your friends and family. It tastes amazing, and it will add a little something special to the otherwise traditional menu. So bring the joy that comes with cracking the top of a creme brulee and make these heavenly treats!
