Pie, for me that is a tradition that I would LOVE to break. NO matter how hard I try, I cannot get a pie to turn out. My beautiful crust, forget about it, Fluted edge, NO way. Sure, they may taste great, but they look horrid.

This year on my holiday table you will find this quick and easy no-bake chocolate cheesecake mousse with pomegranates; they definitely say holiday.
