My 5 Favorite Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes ~ variety is the spice of life, especially when it comes to the Thanksgiving dessert table, so here are a few creative ways to shake things up, in a tried and true sort of way.

Cranberry Gingersnap Pie

This pie is the queen of Thanksgiving desserts in my book. Tangy, sweet cranberry curd is poured in to a spicy, buttery, gingersnap crust. The gorgeous color alone is enough to make me love this pie, but the taste is even better!

Libby’s New Fashioned Pumpkin Pie ~

Have you seen my review of the NEW Libby’s pumpkin pie recipe yet? Spoiler alert: I love it! No Thanksgiving menu is complete without a pumpkin pie, and you can’t get any more classic than this.

Flourless Belgian Chocolate Cake ~

For the chocolate lovers in your clan, this flourless chocolate cake is fudgy and irresistible with a paper thin crackly top. I recommend an interestingly flavored whipped cream to top this one: how about adding a splash of bourbon, or a dose of cinnamon to spice things up.

Maple Frangipane Pecan Pie ~

This riff on a traditional pecan pie replaces the corn syrup filling with a delicious, nutty, chewy maple frangipane.  This recipe allows you to do something a little different while still giving everybody what they crave in a pecan pie.

Flourless Pumpkin Spice Cake ~

This tender pumpkin cake is completely grain free for the gluten free eaters at your table.  But it’s such a pretty dessert that everybody’s going to want a slice.
