Thanksgiving Cometh Early

Today is our office Thanksgiving luncheon. As a typical over-acheiever Betty, I signed up first on the list to bring something, and decided to try a new recipe, an Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie. I figure, the office staff can be my unofficial testers :)

But also as a typical over-acheiver Betty, I was too busy with other things and came home last night and realized late that I did not have the supplies. Thus, I had to do a Kroger run at like 10pm, and then was literally up this morning at 7am baking. Typical. 

Here's hoping it goes over well! If people like the filling, I will make it again, but in a homemade crust, because as great as that $2 premade frozen one from Kroger is, it just doesn't look as fab as I'd like for the end presentation. The filling was way easy, too, something that even you non-bakers could put together. Though now reading the reviews of the recipe, I am a bit worried about how it will slice out, as some people said the filling doesn't hold up out of the pie. I will keep you posted on how it goes over!

Are you having an office luncheon for the holidays? What are you bringing? One of your specialties, or something new like me?
