15 Thanksgiving Dessert Ideas

Good morning! I am so excited for Thanksgiving and am starting to get my recipes together. This year my sister and her family are coming to visit and my niece has a sweet tooth just as I do so desserts are high on our Thanksgiving dinner menu.
Today I thought I would put together a list of 15 desserts that I would love to have over the holidays, admittedly many contain pumpkin but there are also apples and pecans for the traditionalists.

1. Pumpkin Pie with Whipped Cream

2. Pumpkin Cheesecake with Praline Topping

3. Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

4. Spiced Pumpkin Bars

5. Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Salted Caramel Sauce

6."Starbucks" Pumpkin Bread with Struesel Topping

7. Pumpkin Loaf with Frosting

8. Ben Starr's Pumpkin Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and Candies Nuts

9. Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Dark Chocolate, Cranberries and White Chocolate Drizzle

10. Slab Apple Pie

11. Harvest Apple Pie

12. Cranberry Apple Crisp

13. Pecan Pies

14. Pecan Pie Cheesecake from Tasty Kitchen

15. Cheesecake Pumpkin Pecan Pie by Parsley Sage Sweet

What are your favorite Thanksgiving desserts? Are you a pumpkin, pecan or apple pie fan? Do your get your pies from a favorite bakery or do you make your own? Or do you skip the pies and make another favorite dessert? 
I would love to know more about your traditions and recipes so please feel free to share!

Have a great day!

  1. I'm ravenously hungry now. Though not for the pecan pie- that's one type I don't care for, simply because pecans don't appeal to me.

  2. Well you just had to do it, didn't you? Make it impossible for me to get through the cooking projects without using one of your delicious-looking recipes. However, I must tell you I make the best Pumpkin Chiffon Pie w/Whipped Cream Topping on the planet. Posting that next. Love you......

  3. Yummmmm! I will make a pecan pie using my mom's recipe. Though I drool over dessert recipes every year I always make the pecan pie...i always imagine my mother having a good laugh, as I would never eat it growing up. It really is so good! I hope you are having a good week!

  4. Every single one of these looks divine!! Thanks for sharing these scrumptious desserts, Elizabeth!! xoxo

  5. OMG!!!! I am craving something sweet! These look so decadent, that last one could do me in big time.
    We are very lucky have a very special farm, Youngs Farm that makes the most divine pies and theres a line out around the building every Thanksgiving and Christmas but its worth means less work for me, and seriously I could not compete with their amazing pies!

  6. Que tout cela est beau et a l'air délicieux ...
    Partager votre thanksgiving doit être inoubliable
    Bonne soirée

  7. Wow, do these look good. This post is getting me in the mood for next week's big meal!
