25 Thanksgiving Desserts
As much as I love Thanksgiving dinner and all the Thanksgiving side dish recipes I end up making I look forward to Thanksgiving dessert recipes the most.
Actually I just love dessert recipes. One of my favorite things about any holiday is the dessert recipes. I love making dessert recipes and I love eating dessert recipes.
Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first. ~Ernestine Ulmer
My favorite dessert quote says it all. After all the hard work that goes into making Thanksgiving dinner, there is no better reward than a sweet treat.
Pumpkin Pie is my favorite Thanksgiving dessert.
It wins hands down when it comes to Thanksgiving Day desserts.
Regardless of any other Thanksgiving dessert recipe (I usually make more than one) I plan on making I also have to make a homemade pumpkin pie every Thanksgiving or my family will never let me live it down.
They are pretty spoiled when it comes to Thanksgiving. I have to make turkey (of course), gravy, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie. That’s it and my family would be happy.
