The Best Desserts for your Thanksgiving Feast

Turkey and stuffing are always a hit during this time of year, but the sweet Autumn Aroma that comes along with a cup of crisp apple cider is what excites us most about Fall. While Grandma’s homemade pumpkin pie recipe can’t be replaced, we have a few additional treats in the running for best Thanksgiving dessert!

Chocolate Ganache Tart

This Chocolate Ganache Tart is the perfect combination of silky smooth filling with a crunchy crust. Substitute gluten-free pretzels for the crust, rice flour, and vegan dark chocolate so even those with dietary restrictions can enjoy! Top it with pomegranate or raspberries to add a tart finish to this dish.

German Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars

The best part about Thanksgiving is the leftovers, and these German Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars are just as delicious fresh out of the oven as they are the next day. We recommend adding a little cocoa to the crust, and toasted pecans on top to taste all the fall flavors you’ve been craving.

Crustless Apple Pie

This Crustless Apple Pie is always a fan favorite for kids, and these simple steps make it easy for them to help. Under parental supervision, have your kids hollow out the insides of Granny Smith apples, stuff them with apple pie filling, and top them with a simple lattice pie crust. Place them in the oven and watch them form! It doesn’t get much cuter than this.
