Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It’s a time where family and friends gather to give thanks to all of our blessings and a time where we cook (and bake) some of the tastiest food. 🦃
Growing up I always ate what we considered to be a Mexican Thanksgiving meal with turkey, mole, and arroz. It wasn’t until a few years ago that we began to also cook a more traditional American Thanksgiving meal with a turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, green beans and more. Pecan and pumpkin pie have always been our desserts of choice.
In an effort to prep for this year’s Thanksgiving meal, I took a cooking class with Circle Seven Five called “Iron Chef: Friendsgiving” with the talented Chef Jessica Kantak at the The Art Institute of Dallas.
We made four Thanksgiving recipes that were all created by Jessica. They included: sweet potato bourbon soup, garlic, bacon and shallot brussel sprouts, mini baked brie bites, and apple pie roses.
Overall, making everything was fairly easy and I finally learned how to make the beautiful apple pie roses. They are as delicious as they look! My favorite recipe to make and eat were the mini baked brie bites. Y’all, these mini bites of goodness were so so good! I couldn’t stop eating them and will definitely be making more.
