Every year at Thanksgiving, I try to find a new, bizarre holiday recipe to share. Two years ago, I wrote an article about an intrepid chef who attempted to cook a series of disgusting vintage Thanksgiving dishes (including the “Frozen Jellied Turkey-Vegetable Salad”). And last year, I highlighted the “Thanksgiving Turkey Cake,” which is basically an entire thanksgiving dinner smooshed together into a single cake. It’s both awe-inspiring and terrifying.
This year, I came across an amazing dessert called the “Cherpumple.” Much like the “Turducken” (which is a combination of turkey, duck and chicken), the Cherpumple is a strange amalgamation of several different things. Created by Charles Phoenix, the Cherpumple is made by combining a cherry pie, a pumpkin pie, an apple pie, white cake, yellow cake, and spice cake. All in one! And it’s all covered with a generous layer of cream cheese frosting! Whoo!
So if you’re feeling brave and adventurous (and hungry!) click the link below to learn exactly how to make a glorious Cherpumple! And have a very happy Thanksgiving!
