Pecan Pies - Done!

Thanksgiving 2011

And the rest of the crusts are made and ready to go.

I have a great hosting tip for you if you're expecting company. I've tried this once so far and it worked beautifully.

Get out your baking racks and put them on the kitchen counter. Put some cookies on them and people will think you've been slaving away baking all day. It's as easy as that!

Now it happens that I DID make these cookies and they really were cooling on the racks. (So what if I packed them away a few hours earlier and then arranged them back on the rack just before the doorbell rang!)

It gives folks that homey feeling and I promise it'll work for you too. Maybe Oreo's aren't the best choice, though. Stick with something that at least looks homemade.

BTW, these are Toll House cookies with no chocolate chips, just white chips and TONS of toasted nuts - about 3 cups.

Wow! I love Thanksgiving week on Food Network Musings! It's so much fun, and has always been my favorite.

Those cookies look REALLY good. I wish I had one right now. Happy Thanksgiving!!
