And the best cooks? Clara Nordmann won first place with her Pumpkin Cake. 2nd place went to Conchita Jara with her Pastel de Queso y Uva con gelatina de Pedro Ximenes. David Folkers placed 3rd with his Fudge Brownies and Declan Mulcahy was 4th with Frambua Delight. 5th place was a 3-way tie: Victoria Bamond with Mint Milano, Pilar Saura with Lemon Pie and Isabel Garcia and Nieves Girón with Limoníssismo. There were, of course, several pumpkin and apple pies, cheesecakes and carrot cakes and brownies. Traditional Thanksgiving desserts shared the table with other favorites from the USA, England, Spain, Italy, Russia and Rumania. A big "THANKS" to everyone who brought in a dessert!
