Thanksgiving Dessert Round Up!

Do you have your Thanksgiving menu done yet?

I don’t.

But that’s okay – that’s what this afternoon is for!

All I know is that there will be turkey, some kind of potatoes, my farmhouse bread (times a million), a green veggie, and some fantastic desserts.

Deciding on holiday desserts is the hardest part for me – there are always so many new ones I want to try! But it’s so hard to NOT make the traditional ones that everyone expects.

Since I’m still not sure what desserts we’re having, here’s a round up of some of my favorite fall desserts AND a bunch of the ones I’ve got on my t0-make list.

Molasses Cream Pie Cookies

Gingersnap Milkshake

Pumpkin Dip

Gingersnap Bark

Vanilla Maple Bread Pudding – for dessert, breakfast, or brunch! Just a heads up – it tastes like it’s been soaking in vanilla ice cream…

Pumpkin Butterscotch Cake

Pumpkin Spice Latte Truffles

Maple Apple Walnut Bread

Honey, Fig, and Walnut Cake

Want a new pie crust recipe? Toss in some oat flour for some extra sweetness.

Orange Yogurt Pound Cake

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecakes


And…some more desserts I’m drooling over…

Pumpkin White Chocolate Chunk and Candied Ginger Blondies

Pomegranate Hazelnut Scones

Sweet Potato Stuffed Baked Apples with Toasted Marshmallows

Pumpkin Pie Fudge Brownie Bars

Chocolate Angel Nut Pie

Pumpkin Spice Latte with Whiskey

Chocolate Caramel Pecan Shortbread Bars

Fudgy Pumpkin Swirl Brownies

Cinnamon Roll Cookies

Apple Toffee Galette

Caramel Pecan Pie

Creamy Italian Hot Cocoa – I tried this myself a few weeks ago. So good!

Mexican Hot Chocolate Roasted Pecans

Pumpkin Crumb Cake

Pear Caramel Ice Cream

Salted Caramel Pudding

Cranberry Vanilla Rice Pudding

Cranberry Orange Cake Donuts

Amaretti Apple Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

Sweet Potato Cupcakes with Milk Chocolate Buttercream

Rustic Ramekin Pecan Pies

Pumpkin Parfaits


What’s on your dessert table this week?

    I think we need a holiday that is JUST for these desserts. I might start a new tradition.

    Thankfully I don’t have any culinary responsibilities this holiday — my sister’s in charge of the bird and all the fixin’s. But I am going to bring a batch of homemade peanut-butter truffles, which I’m working on right now before zipping off to work!
