Thanksgiving Desserts: Pies, Tarts, Cheesecake and More!


Thanksgiving desert recipesThe more Thanksgiving desserts there are, the better. Whether it’s pie, tarts, cheesecake, or even ice cream, I love it all. Pumpkin pie is hands down my favorite Thanksgiving dessert recipe, and my favorite type of pumpkin pie is made from scratch. It has a light and airy texture that the canned variety is often lacking.

Apple pie also holds a special place in my heart … and on my table, and I usually serve an apple pie or tart. Apple tarts can be an easier option on the big day, but an apple pie is always a welcome addition. Cheesecake can be a great, crowd-pleasing option — a pumpkin cheesecake is festive and rich, but I also love a plain and simple cheesecake flavored with pears.

Know matter how you slice it, we have a great array of delicious Thanksgiving desserts that will please everyone at your table.
