Thanksgiving Dessert Ideas


Thanksgiving is, hands down, my favorite holiday of the entire year. Well, besides National Coffee Day and National Kindness Day (next Friday!!!!). Everything about Thanksgiving gets me hype, especially the one thousand different types of potatoes and ALL THE PUMPKIN!!! Last year, I made pumpkin doughnut holes and a crumbly pumpkin bread for my family's Thanksgiving dinner and I wanted to one up myself this year. Though, I will admit, I've been thinking a lot about those doughnut holes and might have to give those another go if I can find the recipe I used somewhere in the depths of my Pinterest boards...

Alas, I've decided to make a brand new list of Thanksgiving-centric treats that you could make up for your family's Thanksgiving. Though, really, who needs a holiday in order to consume all of these lovely goodies? Not me!

1. Cinnamon Swirled Glazed Pumpkin Coffee Cake
2. Pumpkin Empanadas 
3. Baked Pumpkin Fritter Bites
4. No Bake Praline Cookies
5. Pumpkin Cookie Cheesecake
6. Pumpkin Spice Cookies with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
7. Pumpkin Cannoli Recipe
8. Cinnamon Sugar Pecans
9. Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cake Balls
10. Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

I usually try to make a few things to share with my family for Thanksgiving, especially since our dinners have been getting increasingly larger as the years go by. That's generally what happens when families expand and your mom has like one thousand siblings (or 11, but honestly at that point, what's the difference?).

What's your favorite dessert around this time of year?
