Thanksgiving Desserts That Go Beyond Pumpkin Pie

November 24, 2015

Thanksgiving is as much about the turkey as it is about the desserts.  While pumpkin pie is a personal favorite of mine, it is not a hit with all guests so I like to give them options. This includes other pumpkin flavored desserts such as a bundt cake or cheesecake, apple, cranberry and of course chocolate.  Desserts are one of the dishes that can be made ahead of time so I strongly urge you to do your baking the day before so you have more time to enjoy the family on Thanksgiving day.  Here are some other delicious alternatives for your non-pumpkin pie eating friends and family.
