Thanksgiving Desserts

Prelude to Thanksgiving
I am in the final preparation stages for the big day this week. I think I’ve decided on our desserts. In a departure from our traditional pecan pie, we’re having Pecan Pie Cheesecake because, well, I love pecan pie and I also love cheesecake. I’m also making an apple pie (specific recipe yet to be determined), if for no other reason than the fact that I’ve somehow never made one.

For our third dessert, I’m not quite as sure. I’m thinking something chocolate. Maybe a really good chocolate cake with chocolate icing. My brother-in-law recently had a birthday, but his birthday dinner was the day after we got back from New York. So, there was no time to make him a dessert. I thought the third Thanksgiving dessert could be something for him. He doesn’t like nuts or coconut. And he’s not a big fan of cream cheese. He does love chocolate and peanut butter. Does anyone have any suggestions? Also, what are you making for your family and friends for Thanksgiving?

    1. Thanksgiving tends to be about traditional desserts in our family rather than a time to try new, exciting recipes. Our table will include: apple pie (my great aunt’s recipe which I can send you if you are interested), pumpkin pie, pecan pie, butterscotch pudding pie, chocolate pudding pie, and grandma’s bread pudding.

    2. Smelling the sizzling turkeys already? Well, well, Thanksgiving Recipes can be yummier than you think. With the turkey sitting pretty alright, there are more to treat the taste-buds of your friends and folks. Get some Thanksgiving recipe ideas at

    3. Lovely picture!

      I’m not sure I can find pecans here in Italy, but we’re going to be able to put together a pumpkin pie and make some brownies (maybe with some peanut butter chips someone just gifted me from”abroad”)

    4. Lauren, your dessert spread sounds delicious! I think I’ve picked my apple pie recipe, but I am in the market for a good bread pudding recipe.

      Sara, my heart goes out to you as I cannot imagine life without pecans. You poor, poor girl! Brownies with peanut butter chips sound terrific!

    5. The desserts sound divine.

      I’m not making Thanksgiving dessert, but I just put the finishing touches on a four-layer birthday cake. Tomorrow’ also happens to be a set of twin relatives milestone birthday.
