Thanksgiving is coming up soon, and tasty desserts are one of the best parts of the holiday! For me one of the hardest part of planning Thanksgiving dinner is picking out what desserts to make. My family has traditional favorites they enjoy, like pumpkin pie or blueberry cheesecake, but it is also a great time to try something new and different.
Keeping it relatively simple is key! The last thing you want during the holidays is extra stress because the most important part of the holiday is spending time with your family and friends, not spending all day in the kitchen. So pick a few traditional desserts, something new and fun and then relax and enjoy the holiday.
Any of these fabulous Thanksgiving desserts would be a perfect ending to a traditional Thanksgiving meal, whether you are looking for something traditional or something unique and different.
Pies are the traditional Thanksgiving dessert. Apple pie, pumpkin pie and pecan pie are old standbys, but here are some ideas for more unique pies too.
For me cheesecakes are the ultimate indulgent desserts. I love cheesecake, but they are too rich and calorie laden to make very often. But Thanksgiving is the ultimate forget about calorie counting holiday.
A rich cheesecake is a great way to celebrate family and friends. These cheesecakes range from traditional to Instant Pot baked desserts.
Other Thanksgiving Dessert Ideas
Sometimes you want something less traditional to serve on Thanksgiving. These desserts are quick and easy to make, while still incorporating holiday flavors like pumpkin and cranberries.
