    Many thing on our table have maple in them, Basted the Turkey, in the squash, in the pumpkin pie, on the vegetables. Likely more that I'm not remembering.

    Maple pecan pie, and maple Long Island iced tea afterward. Also, a good source of feedback for different experiments... coffee infused syrup in our case. It was a big hit.

    Pumpkin pie made with maple sugar, served warm out of the oven with a dollop of whipped cream and maple syrup drizzled over it. Excellent! Ted

    Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts. Not traditional for thanksgiving, but always a favorite.

    We tried a Maple Cheesecake this year. The recipe was from Cabot Creamery and can easily be found on line. I followed the recipe, except that I did it in a traditional pie plate - and I added maple crumble on top. It was excellent!
