Happy Thanksgiving!! Three great recipes for dessert! Pumpkin Custard, Apple Crisp & Lemon Meringue Pie
Three desserts that are perfect for anytime but great to end a Thanksgiving meal!
I love the Pumpkin Custard, baked in individual ramekins these are easy to serve & if you have left-overs perfect in the fridge for a few days. Light & cream in texture they are perfect if you are full from dinner!
Apple Crisp is always a great dessert… eat some fruit!!
And last but not least by any means… Lemon Meringue Pie Always perfect in my mind! One of my favorite pies. I like to use lemon pie filling for my Lemon Meringue Pies.. it is easy & we like it! Of course making the lemon filling from scratch is always good too but this recipe is with the boxed lemon filling.
My husband Murray loves everything pumpkin! Maybe not a pumpkin spice latte but pretty sure everything else! Murray made these pumpkin custards with fresh pumpkin & they are delish!
Always a welcome dessert, it seems that everyone loves Apple Crisp! Apple Crisp is so much simpler to make than pie…& I bet it is healthier too. Though I am no nutritionalist..it makes sense to me…though don’t get me wrong…I love pie!! But for a quick fruit dessert…Apple Crisp is a really delicious choice. You…

Always a welcome dessert, it seems that everyone loves Apple Crisp!
Apple Crisp is so much simpler to make than pie…& I bet it is healthier too. Though I am no nutritionalist..it makes sense to me…though don’t get me wrong…I love pie!! But for a quick fruit dessert...Apple Crisp is a really delicious choice.
You can serve Apple Crisp alone or with ice cream…we had it with coconut whipped topping.which was delicious!
The recipe for this is by Norene Gilletz… Her CRUNCHY APPLE CRISP recipe in her cookbook THE PLEASURES OF YOUR FOOD PROCESSOR.
I follow the recipe almost exactly except I always use a non-dairy/parve margarine for the topping. Sometimes if I don’t have any non-dairy margarine I use some oil .. i usually try to half the amount of oil to the amount of butter called for….but if it seems dry I add more oil. ex. 1/2 cup of butter start with 1/4 cup of oil… And I use more apples. I put the apples in a shallow baking dish & use the same amount of topping as the recipe calls for when using less apples
One of things about Apple Crisp os that if you do not want to make a large amount, use the amount of apples you want & just adjust the topping recipe, making less to fit the pan you are using. Remember though that the apples cook down so the dish will be less full once this cooks. Sometimes I take 4 apples, slice them up, put them in an appropriate sized baking dish, half the recipe for the topping & bake! This way I have a dessert that we can eat in a day or two & not have so much left over..although we love Apple Crisp so if I make a big dish we eat it al! It is good for breakfast with some yogurt on it!
Here is the recipe
3 lbs apples…I used granny smith this time but use any apple you like. The granny smith were very tart
1 cup raisins…. ***optional
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup non-dairy margarine *** I use Becel vegan margarine
1/2 cup oats *** I use quick oats
1 tsp cinnamon
Mehod Preheat oven to 375f
Grease a 9 x 13 pan for the 3 lbs of apples
- Prepare the apples, I peel & slice them thinly
- Put the apples into the prepared baking dish
- In a bowl, mix the topping ingredients together until crumbly & completely combined *** I use my hands to do this, but you can use a fork, or the food processor but just pulse it in the processor so that the oats do not get too fine…
- Put the topping evenly over the apples
- Bake in the preheated oven for 35 – 40 minutes until the apples are cooked & the topping is brown
