I’m in charge of dessert on Thanksgiving; I make all of the classics: apple, pecan, pumpkin and chocolate pies, and I make one new pie every year (last year it was banana cream, the year before that, butterscotch). But this year, much to my dismay, my family has asked that I tone it down — they’re trying to be healthy.

There’s been a loud, thrice-repeated request that we keep it to two pies. TWO PIES. Yes, this is enough dessert for a family of six. But two types of pie is not enough for a proper Thanksgiving! Should I make apple and pecan and skip the pumpkin? Uh, no. Pecan and pumpkin and no apple? Also, no. Do I ignore my family's wishes and make five pies anyway? Also, no, because I don’t want to be a jerk on Thanksgiving, which would also put me on the Christmas naughty list.

But guess what – some genius invented a pie plate that was basically made to solve my dilemma. The split decision pie pan, aka the everyone-gets-their-way-this-Thanksgiving pan, means that I can satisfy my family and myself this year. I can make a half pecan-half pumpkin, and a half apple-half banana cream pie this year, and everyone wins. And maybe my one new thing this year will be Thanksgiving cupcakes, because the fam just said to limit the pies — no one said anything about cupcakes.
