Simple Thanksgiving Dessert

With Thanksgiving coming up most of us wonder what should we bring to Thanksgiving. For the last few years I’ve celebrated Thanksgiving with Brandon’s family and we have a blast. There are so many of us and the house is always filled with laughter. Everyone in his family has their dish that they make year after year. I always bring a dessert because it’s safe. Last year I made a pecan pie from a jar! It was so easy. I didn’t have to stress about taking up too much counter space or getting in anyone’s way. All I had to do was put the pie crust in a pie pan, let it bake for a few minutes, dump the pecan pie in and put it back in the over. Simple. Easy.  This year I wanted to try something new.

Last week I made Oreo Poke Cake for my boss’ birthday. . .plus to test out the recipe. This recipe couldn’t have been easier to make. My whole department devoured it. What’s so great about this cake is, I can make it the night before and it will just continue you get better.

Once the cake comes out of the oven, poke holes throughout the cake. Then top it with the cookies and cream pudding and place it in the fridge for a few hours to set. Before you serve, top with LOTS of crumbled up Oreos.

You can make this same cake but with different combinations. The next one I want to try is either Boston Creme Pie or Lemon & Blueberry Poke cake.

You can find the recipe to the Oreo Poke Cake here.

Come back on Thursday for my week of Blue Apron recap.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
