Happy Thanksgiving!

A Thanksgiving cake I made for a friend - it's pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing and rough iced with caramelized walnuts.

Happy Thanksgiving readers! Hope you’re all having lovely celebrations with your families. For those last minute emergency baking or turkey questions, I’m going to refer you to the help lines, like I do every Thanksgiving.

For pie and baking questions:

For baking and cooking questions:

  • The Splendid Table, Lynne Rossetto Kasper’s  wonderful NPR cooking show, will be having a two hour live call-in show starting at 11:00 am (eastern) on Thanksgiving day. Give Lynne a call at (800) 537-5252. You can also submit questions online at the show’s web site.

For a pie crisis

  • The Crisco Pie Hotline will answer your basic and advanced pie baking questions. Call them at -877-FOR PIE TIPS (1-877-367-7438). Granted, I hope they can answer questions about more than just shorting, since I dearly hope you’re using some butter in your pie crust (actually, I hope you’re using a ratio of six tbs butter and 2 tbs shortening to 1 cup of flour).

For turkey troubles

  • If you’re anti-Butterball, Reynolds has a Turkey Tips Hotline at 1-800-745-4000.
  • If your Turkey question is specific to brining, call the Spice Hunter brining hotline at 888-334-8977 from 10:30 a.m. — 7:30 p.m (EST), or via email at brine@spicehunter.com

Good luck!

May everyone have a good baking and cooking day!
