If you’re looking for a quick, easy and delicious sweet treat around Thanksgiving, Jessica has you covered.

She made an Apple Dutch baby for her Friendsgiving ladies lunch. It makes for a great dessert or brunch item, and is a nice addition to the table.

It can also be served as a pre-Thanksgiving breakfast item, or even a nice treat post-Turkey day!
