Brownies and Bars
Imagine your favorite snickerdoodle cookie but in bar form. When it comes to Thanksgiving desserts this one is truly not to be missed.
I told you there would be pumpkin!
These take almost no time to whip up and can easily be prepped ahead! Perfect for all ages
You can never have enough bars for Thanksgiving desserts am I right? There are part cookie / part cheesecake and 100% addictive.
Pies and Crisps
Looks fancy right?! It's gorgeous but it's not too complicated... just requires some knife skills and a piece of store bought puff pastry.
Honestly this is one of my all time favorite Thanksgiving desserts with a big scoop of good vanilla ice cream on top!
If you want something that looks like a pie but it 10283 times better... this is it! A salted chocolate ganache with a potato chip crust... it's a perfect showstopping thanksgiving dessert!
Ok FINE.... I gave you a pie!! It's pretty too!
Cakes and Pudding
If you want another show stopper... this is it!
Ok one more pie but instead of a pumpkin filling.... it's S'MORES!!
For anyone who REALLY REALLY REALLY loves chocolate... this is for you.
It's half dessert and half breakfast so if you're lucky enough to have leftovers... this is the way to go on a weekend morning!
My childhood favorite! A just slightly under-baked cookie that you can attack straight outta the pan!
And there you have it - all my favorite Thanksgiving Desserts so you can jazz up your Thanksgiving table!
