My Favorite Thanksgiving Desserts

I shared my tips for hosting Thanksgiving dinner and my Thanksgiving dinner faves. That means it's time for dessert!

Of course I like standard apple, pumpkin, and pecan pies for Thanksgiving! And for a few years, I made a basic apple pie for Thanksgiving. But gradually I branched out and the following desserts have made multiple appearances at our dinners over the years. I tend to serve at least one of these faves, one new recipe, and one thing that contains chocolate in some form! {Sorry about the pics - I really need to retake these when I have a chance.}

Amaretto Cake. My step mother-in-law served it once and I've been making it ever since.

Pumpkin Dessert. Combine cake, nuts, butter, and a pumpkin pie mixture? DElish. I first had this recipe years ago from a coworker. It was often my go-to Thanksgiving dessert.

No-Bake Pumpkin Pie. Found this recipe when I was a teenager and have been making it on and off for Thanksgiving since then. It's a great alternative to regular baked pumpkin pie.

No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cheesecake. Found this recipe a few years ago and altered it a bit. It's so ridiculously simple and super rich.

I have made and enjoyed many other desserts, but these are definitely my favorites - for Thanksgiving that is! I have different favorites for each holiday. :)

What are your favorite Thanksgiving desserts? If you have a link to one, share it in the comments!
