These Thanksgiving desserts span traditional pies as well as a few unexpected surprises to ensure you end up with just the finish you crave for your holiday meal.
Pumpkin Pots de Crème
These fancy-sounding desserts are essentially creamy custards that come together with very little time or effort from half-and-half, brown sugar, pumpkin, eggs, and warm spices. So good you’re gonna want them year round.
Cranberry Apple Crostata
Know what we can’t stop thinking about? This crostata. At first whiff of its heady fall spices and rustic charm, you’ll tumble head over heels.
Maple Pumpkin Pie
This is just about as traditional as tradition gets. Save for the slight plot twist of maple syrup. Intrigued? You should be.
Pumpkin Meringue Pie
At long last, a slice of pumpkin pie that can be considered complete in and of itself—no dollop of whipped cream required. Pumpkin and meringue. So happy together.
Sweet Potato Pie
Sugar and spice and everything nice—that’s what you’ll find in this magnificently spiced traditional Southern pie from baker extraordinaire, Cheryl Day.
Cranberry Upside-Down Cake
Tart and buttery, with a touch of orange liqueur, this cake is a showstopper. And it’s actually easier than it looks. You’re welcome!
Maple Pecan Pie
Distinct from other pecan pies in one notable way, this recipe draws on robust maple syrup to usurp cloying corn syrup. You’re welcome.
Pumpkin Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting
This impressive dessert, created by David himself, takes a lovely autumnal lilt from pumpkin purée in the batter and maple syrup in the frosting. One of our most popular cakes.
Whole Apple Dumplings
These individual, apple-filled, rough puff pastry dumplings are superb for dessert. And just as good for breakfast.
Pumpkin Pecan Pie
You no longer need to confront the eternal Thanksgiving dilemma of pumpkin or pecan pie. This recipe, in true egalitarian fashion, ensures you can have both.
Hot Buttered Rum Apple Pie
An unconventional approach to apple pie that happily involves booze and lotsa butter. Even more memorable than the classic.
Pumpkin Meringue Pie Ice Cream
A cool, creamy version of our favorite pie. Pumpkin ice cream with chunks of crunchy crust and, get this, swirls of marshmallowy meringue.
Maple Buttermilk Pie
“Silky.” “Creamy.” “Tangy.” “Sweet.” That’s what folks are saying about this pie that tastes like poor man’s cheesecake.
Black Bottom Pecan Pie
Ovenly’s chocolate-enhanced rendition of a classic is a revelation with its melding of several different tempting dessert elements in a single incarnation.
