It may be the last course of a holiday meal, but it shouldn't be forgotten. No Thanksgiving feast is complete without a decadent dessert! From classic pecan and pumpkin pie to tarts, tortes, cheesecakes, cookies, cakes and more, browse our collection of family-favorite Thanksgiving desserts.
Even those who don't care for fruit cake will love this special holiday dessert. It's a great way to "dress up" that old favorite, carrot cake. Why not see if your family agrees? —Ann Parden, Chunchula, Alabama
Both attractive and delicious, this flaky tart combines a tender golden brown crust with a sweet filling that might remind you of baklava. It's a holiday favorite at our house. —Patricia Harmon, Baden, Pennsylvania
A layer of sweetened cream cheese topped with a tart fruit filling makes this pie popular with family, friends and co-workers. It won the blue ribbon at a local fair.—Donna L. Rettew, Jonestown, Pennsylvania
When Mom baked this old-fashioned sugar pie, family members would clamor for second servings. We love the combination of cinnamon, coconut, nuts and raisins. She'd sometimes toss in a few chocolate chips for variety. Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner were not complete without this dessert.
My son loves pear crisp, but one night I was making bread pudding. He asked if I could make both. I compromised by combining two desserts into this one dish. It's absolutely fantastic!—Kurt Wait, Redwood City, California
This pie is good served warm or at room temperature. We like it with scoops of vanilla ice cream or thick whipped cream on top. It’s great with any meal, or on its own with a cup of coffee or glass of milk as a treat.
