Looking for the best Thanksgiving dessert recipes? I mean, truly incredibly delicious sweet treats everyone will love? You've come to the right place!
Are you thinking about Thanksgiving yet? When we moved to Florida eleven years ago, I knew one thing we would all miss was big holiday get-togethers.
My family is still in Maryland, and my husband's family is spread out across the country. We do our best to have Thanksgiving together every couple of years, but it's hard to make it happen!
I love to cook for Thanksgiving, with the Macy's Day Parade on in the background. I make Mom's Thanksgiving stuffing recipe with biscuits and always make extra for breakfast, just like my mom did.
If your mom is still living, call her today. I lost my mom last year and I wish I could call her.
We always have at least two desserts. I don't know why, because we certainly aren't hungry! We have to have a pumpkin pie and something non-traditional, like this Sacher Torte Chocolate Cake.
For those who are on Weight Watchers or simply trying to keep those calories to a minimum, I have some light desserts for Thanksgiving. Having Weight Watchers Thanksgiving desserts will make it easier for those who are trying to lose weight. I don't think anyone would know these desserts are healthier!
I even have a list of Weight Watchers side dishes. You really can keep on track during the holidays by watching those points and exercising with a game of catch football or a family walk.
For those who are having family come in for the holiday, why not surprise them with these Pumpkin and Spiced Apple Cinnabons for breakfast? You can keep them warm in the oven and serve them with that first cup of coffee in the morning. Yum!
You can freeze most desserts and they will be just as delicious, but check each individual post to be sure. Some desserts, like puddings or custards, might not be as good after freezing.
Pumpkin Pie is the most popular Thanksgiving dessert. Sweet Potato Pie and Pecan Pie are also served frequently on Thanksgiving.
Check with the host to see what is already being made or brought. Pumpkin cookies are always a good bet if pie is already on the menu. If nothing is needed, bring flowers or a bottle of wine.
What will you be doing this year? Will you gather with family?
Enjoy this list of the best Thanksgiving dessert recipes, and let me know your favorite! Happy Thanksgiving.
Though the food is certainly important, remember to make great memories. Take lots of photos and talk to each other. Tell stories. Hug each other. Happy Thanksgiving.
