Thanksgiving Dessert Ideas
You can't have a good Thanksgiving dinner without dessert! You can always go for a traditional Thanksgiving dessert, like pumpkin pie or apple pie. If that sounds boring to you, try going for a different kind of apple or pumpkin dessert. What about pumpkin cheesecake? That is a unique dessert idea that is sure to turn heads and pique interest.
Apple crisp is another great idea. This one is a warm, cozy dessert that will leave everyone satisfied after enjoying a filling Thanksgiving dinner. Apples and pumpkin are easy to come by in the store, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding the ingredients you need.
If you want something really unique, you can always go for a cake or cookies. Your guests are likely going to be expecting pie; imagine their delight when they find a different kind of dessert on the table instead! Have your kids help you decorate cookies to look like turkeys. If you're particularly skilled, you can even make a cake shaped like a turkey!
