Guest blogger: Thanksgiving desserts

Thank you Rachel at The Redhead Fashionista for today's guest post!

When it comes to any holiday, everyone has his or her own traditions. So, what's my Thanksgiving tradition? Every year I find a new dessert recipe to try out for my family's dinner. Even though my family always has a pumpkin pie and either an apple pie or a pecan pie, I figure one more dessert couldn't hurt, right? :)

Pumpkin Cake Roll or a Pumpkin Torte would certainly be a good way to incorporate pumpkin into a dessert without making the usual pie.

Or is it a cheesecake that you're craving? If so, the Pumpkin Cheesecake Bar and the Snappy Pumpkin Cheesecake will satisfy your appetite!

If you have children, let them join the fun! Pilgrim Hat Cookies oHandprint Turkey Cookies would be great for kids to make.

But if you're looking for something more traditional, you simply cannot go wrong with a pumpkin pie or a pecan pie.

What's your favorite dessert to eat on Thanksgiving?

My fave has to be apple pie ala mode!



  1. I LOVE pecan pie. I couldn't agree more...the more dessert the better. that what you said?

  2. Im very curious about pecan pie, I have heard so much Id love to try it someday

  3. We're bringing a Derby pie home with us this year. We're going to my family and derby pie is something big in my husband's family so we're going to treat them to one this year! Mmm, pecan pie with bourbon and chocolate, yum!

  4. Handprint turkey cookies...How cute is that??

  5. I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin or pecan pie (I mean, don't get me wrong - they have sugar in them, so I'll eat them...) but my favorite thing to make each Thanksgiving is Banoffee Pie (banana toffee pie with graham cracker crust). Soooo. Delish.


  6. My fav dessert is my mom's Chocolate Chip Pie, it is soooo delicious! And she only makes it around Thanksgiving/Xmas time!


  7. I love love love pumpkin rolls....

  8. I absolutely love pumpkin cheesecake! And this year I'm making a chocolate caramel tart which I'm really really excited about :)

  10. When I lived in the States I went to my friend Jen's for thanksgiving and it was just so friendly, warm and fun....wish I was going again this year...if only for the pumpkin pie!
