I couldn't find a recipe for the dessert I wanted to make for Thanksgiving. The only recipe I could find required something pre-cooked by default that doesn't count as homemade. As a replacement, my nerdy self wants to find a dessert referenced in books of movies. Some examples would be the "chocolate" pie Minnie made from The Help, which is one of my favorite books. Or pumpkin pasties referenced in the Harry Potter books.
And butterscotch cinnamon pie, referenced in Lord of the Rings. I have very religious family members and I was planning on taking advantage of that. I wanted to make blood pie referenced in game of thrones, so that way when they ask what pie is it, I can say with a straight face that it's blood pie.
