Bon Appétit Editors’ Favorite Thanksgiving Dishes.


Talk about a treat, folks: In honor of the Bon Appétit curated event launching today on MYHABIT, the editors over at the foodie magazine share their favorite Thanksgiving dishes.

“When I was a little girl, my mom imparted her joy of baking by letting me help with my grandmother’s pumpkin pie. It’s the perfect starter recipe: Just measure, whisk, and bake. I passed this tradition on to my daughters when they were kids, and they’ve been in charge of making the Thanksgiving pie ever since.” —Janet McCracken, deputy food editor

The Personal Touch
“My grandmother used sugar in her pie, but the New Englander in me prefers Grade B maple syrup.”  —J.M.

“Fifteen years ago, I was tasked with dinner rolls for Thanksgiving at my in-laws’. I’d never made
a yeasted dough before, and figured Fannie Farmer was the place to start. People cornered me for the recipe (I think I upstaged my mother-in-law—sorry!). They’re impossible to mess up, even
for a new baker, and beg to be stuffed with a slice of the holiday bird.” —Carla Lalli Music, features editor

The Personal Touch
“I brush the rolls with melted butter and sprinkle salt on top. The salt makes them irresistible, and the
butter adds gloss.” —C.L.M.

“When it comes to cranberry sauce, I’m no fan of the back-of-the-bag recipe: It’s too sweet and offers little in the way of texture. That’s why I’ve made this raw, tangy, refreshing relish ever since I started hosting Thanksgiving. It’s my new classic.” —Andrew Knowlton, restaurant and drinks editor

The Personal Touch
“I reduced the sugar by about half for a relish with acidity and zip. It’s a great balance to all the big flavors on the plate.” —A.K.
