Cheesy Recipe Roundup: Thanksgiving Pies
With Thanksgiving in just a few days and my super serious diet on hold, I thought I would post up a few alternatives to the old pumpkin pie for the holidays. I'm not much of a cook, nor can I bake, so Jennea, darling, Cottage Cheese Pie please!
First, we have the Fig Goat Cheese Pie with Basil. It's hard to go wrong with figs and goat cheese. Of course, this mini-pie recipe is perfect to prevent that holiday weight.
The Cottage Cheese Pie, my personal favorite, should definitely satisfy your sweet tooth. The chocolatey crumb crust combined with cottage cheese makes for a satisfying dessert after your endless plates of turkey.
Next, is the Blueberry Basil & Goat Cheese Pie. Combining the tartness of the blueberries with goat cheese and basil sets a great combination of a savory and sweet dessert.
Finally, we have the Strawberry Almond Goat Cheesecake. Cake? Pie? Same thing! Try adding a bit of goat cheese into your cream cheese mixture for that tangy taste. Add strawberries and almonds? No problemo.
