THANKSGIVING IS IN A WEEK CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I certainty can’t.  OMG. November and December are two of my favorite months of the year, and it’s not the weather- I can’t stand cold. HOWEVER I love holidays, gift-giving, and spending time with family. And you know what else? PIE.  I’ve been a pie- baking fiend since I was eight years old and discovered a recipe for apple pie in the back of a book about Colonial Williamsburg.

So, to help us pregame for Thanskgiving, for the next 7 days, I will be sharing a new pie recipe every day. Am I crazy? Yes. Yes I am.  Seven pies to help count down until your Thanksgiving dinner!

Today’s pie is super duper simple- Pears, some warming spices (cinnamon and nutmeg), and chocolate, topped with a delicious chocolate chip crumb topping. (Similar to the topping on these bagels.)

I have a recipe for homemade, all- butter pie crust, but for this pie I used store-bought, Pillsbury to be exact. I prefer to make my own, but I live and bake out of a dorm room- homemade is too messy to be trying to make on the floor of a 10’x10′ box.

This pie could not be easier, so why not stock up and make this pie for your Thanksgiving dinner?
