So i just called my dad to inquire about who was bringing what for dessert on Thurs. Pumpkin pie & pecan pie are on the menu. And while the person bringing them is a make-from-scratch person, she's also a shortening/corn syrup person. So I would really like to bring something I will be comfortable eating, but at the same time it has to be dis-similar enough that i'm not stepping on any toes. So that means my previous ideas for pumpkin bread pudding, sweet potato cheesecake or pecan tarts are out.<br><br>
Anyone have any suggestions/ideas? Maybe something cranberry or persimmon or pomegranate...

<p>Mmmm cheesecake...</p>
<p>How about cranberry cheesecake?  Because I think it would be a darn shame to not have any cheesecake at all!</p>

Really good quality homemade vanilla ice cream.<br><p><br>
ETA with a sauce made from pomegranates</p>

Ice cream is a great idea!! Nobody's going to complain about that!!<br><br>
And i found a recipe for cranberry bars that i think i'll take too. Since i'm on cranberry sauce detail, i can just claim excess cranberries. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif">

<p>How about a cranberry pear (or apple) tart? I don't have a recipe, but I had one last year at a party and it was delicious.</p>

<p>Ooh yes, ice cream's always good. You could do cinnamon ripple or something if you wanted to go fancier than vanilla (although vanilla's pretty awesome!).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Or chocolate brownies. Everybody likes those, right?</p>

<p>I just read this ice cream recipe, and thought it would be <em>amazing</em> with Thanksgiving pies...</p>
