Thanksgiving is getting close! I have my menu almost all planned. I just can’t decide on dessert. As someone with a major sweet tooth and that loves to bake, it’s my favorite part of the meal. There are just so many great options out there.
Growing up our family always has had a potluck style Thanksgiving. That meant LOTS of great desserts. Pies, brownies, cookies, fudge, you name it we likely have had it! Some family favorites are my late great grandmother’s coconut cream pie and pineapple cream pie.
Now I also cook a Thanksgiving meal for my husband, in-laws, and myself. In the years past I’ve done both very traditional desserts like pies, using my great grandma’s recipe, and less traditional like Bailey’s cheesecakes. My only requirement is that I can make at least most of it ahead of time. There is so much to do on Thanksgiving it’s nice to have dessert already done.
I’ve been searching for the perfect dessert. While I’m searching I thought it would be fun to share some of the delicious recipes I’ve found. Just beware that this post may cause sugar cravings! I can’t be held responsible for any cheating on diets, you’ve been warned.
Delicious Thanksgiving Desserts
Now to decide what I’m going to make this year! There are just too many choices but four people don’t need multiple desserts. We may want them but we shouldn’t have them.
I’d love to hear what you are making, if you are making a dessert. Let me know in the comments.
