Thanksgiving Dessert Ideas

The Sweet Stuff

No Thanksgiving would be complete without an over-the-top dessert table. Whether you go for a classic pumpkin pie, an easy no-bake situation, or an unexpected rice pudding, we can pretty much guarantee that any of our recipes will be a hit.

The Pies

It’s not Thanksgiving without a heaping slice of pie, whether you pick traditional pumpkin, pecan, or something in between. And though our spiced apple crostata is not quite a pie, it still utilizes all of the same components: a buttery, flaky crust and sweet, gooey filling.

The Cakes and Cookies

What pairs perfectly with pie? Even more sweet stuff. Try introducing untraditional desserts to your spread this year, like a fragrant cake that incorporates a hidden veggie, a boxed cake mixed that feels like anything but, or flaky cookies that should be passed with a steaming cup of coffee.

No Crust Necessary

The best part about these sweet desserts is that our rice pudding and no-bake apple cheesecake jars are pre-portioned so everyone gets their fill.
