24 Nov Thanksgiving Desserts That Will Have Them Saying "More, Please!"
Where do your Thanksgiving desserts come from? You have several options. Make them yourself, buy them from your favorite bakery, or let friends and family bring them when they come to dinner.
It’s typical to serve two to three desserts with Thanksgiving dinner, depending on how many people will be eating and how much variety you want.
Happy Thanksgiving from Carolina Carpet One.
Here are some of our favorite Thanksgiving treats. Most of these desserts can be made ahead of time and refrigerated until you’re ready for them. Serve with freshly brewed coffee, tea, or dessert wine.
Pies–Pies are the traditional Thanksgiving dessert, and with good reason. There are so many varieties, you may have trouble choosing: pecan, pumpkin, apple, cherry, lemon meringue, Boston creme, and sweet potato are just some of our favorites.
Crisps and Cobblers–Easier to make than pies (since there is not crust) and just as delicious: cherry, apple, peach, pear, cranberry, and blueberry are just a few of your options.
Cookies–What’s not to love about holiday cookies? Ingredients like caramel, nuts, chocolate, oatmeal, molasses, cinnamon, ginger, and toffee melt in your mouth and satisfy your taste buds. Assemble a variety of your favorite cookies on platters and place on the table so guests can help themselves.
Cheesecake–This is a creamy, rich, and decadent crowd-pleaser. Top your cheesecake with fruit, chocolate, peanut butter, caramel, or nuts.
Pudding–Creamy, rich, and cool! Chocolate, vanilla, banana, rice, and tapioca puddings are all holiday classics. Serve in pretty glass bowls, goblets, or mason jars.
