Below you’ll find just about everything you could possibly need to make the dessert moment of your dreams! Well, everything except Pumpkin Pie because honestly everyone has their own pumpkin pie recipe and truth me told… I think it’s kinda boring. Don’t judge me! I’ll take pumpkin in every other form… but pie! So grab a few recipes below, add them to your to-do list (many can be made ahead!) and let’s do this!

Chocolate Butterscotch Blondie Brownies – these take almost no time to whip up and can easily be prepped ahead! Perfect for all ages

Cheesecake Cookie Bars – you can never have enough bars am I right? There are part cookie / part cheesecake and 100% addictive.

Salted Chocolate Tart with Potato Chip Crust – 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!

Puff Pastry Apple Galette – 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.
