Today, we're not just talking about one or two Thanksgiving recipes – instead, we're talking about an entire book of Thanksgiving family recipes straight from our friends at Hyatt Regency Boston.
In lieu of sending the traditional chocolate assortment or cookie platter this year, the Sales and Catering team at the hotel decided to put a personal spin on the traditional holiday gift for their clients. They enlisted the help of several associates and asked them to submit their favorite family recipes from Thanksgiving. From there, the hotel created homemade recipe books for each of their clients, accompanied by a picture of the staff that was turned into a personalized thank you card. The team then packaged everything together and dropped off the gift, along with warm apple pies, to each of their clients to thank them for their business. Check out the creative and delicious final product in the photo below!
If you're not a client of Hyatt Regency Boston, don't worry – we got our hands on the great recipes featured in the hotel's holiday cookbook. From Monkey Bread, to Sweet Potato Casserole, to Whoopie Pies, Hyatt Regency Boston's recipe book is filled with unique dishes that are sure to add flavor and fun to any Thanksgiving celebration. We've included a couple of our favorites below, and if you end up making one of these for your Thanksgiving feast, make sure to come back and let us know how it turned out!
Jack Daniel's Chocolate Pecan Pie
Submitted by Tammy Smith, Assistant HR Director at Hyatt Regency Boston
In medium sized bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, butter, syrup, vanilla, and Jack Daniels Whiskey. Mix well. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the bottom of the unbaked pie shell. Cover the chips with pecan halves starting around the outside edge and working your way in towards the center, with the pecans. Pour the filing over the chips and pecans. Pecans will rise to the top during baking. Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes, or until a knife inserted about halfway from the center to the edge comes out clean. You may want to cover the pie crust edge with aluminum foil or a ring to keep from browning too much.
