The Communal Table: Thanksgiving Recipes from our Friends

We jumped into a virtual Thanksgiving potluck this year with some of our friends from other food sites around the web. Epicurious, Food Network, Cooking Light, Bon Appetit, Saveur, and more all contributed recipes for one big Thanksgiving feast. Read on to see the menu of this collective meal.

Thanksgiving Dessert Recipe: Pumpkin-Pecan Cheesecake

Southern Living's Recipe: Pumpkin-Pecan Cheesecake   
Taste the holiday love in each layer–buttery graham cracker-pecan crust, creamy rich pumpkin cheesecake, and a thick Praline Topping that will make you shout, “Lawd have mercy!” And, as if that weren’t Southern enough, we garnished this divine indulgence with Pecan Pie-Glazed Pecans. (Yep, we Southerners love pecans so much, we used the word twice in the recipe title.) Consider making more than one for your holiday guests—it disappears fast!
