7 Thanksgiving Desserts
Best Pumpkin Pie Recipe from Comfortably Domestic. Kirsten is the undisputed queen of pie crust treatments. And she makes a ton of pie. All the pie. She knows what she is doing. If she says this is the best, she is not kidding.
Pumpkin Butterscotch Angel Food Pudding from me. Individual desserts are fun, right? Use a store-bought angel food cake torn into pieces as the base for this light but satisfying “bread” pudding. And it’s hard to beat the pumpkin butterscotch combination.
Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake from Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. I really don’t know what it is about Susan’s desserts. Sometimes words aren’t necessary. The name: caramel apple upside down cake, and the visual are a enough. Thinly sliced apples in caramel sauce get topped with an autumn-scented batter and all baked up for easy elegance. Yes.
Coconut Pecan Cake with Coconut Rum Frosting from The Chef Next Door. Tender buttermilk cake loaded with coconut and pecans. There’s just a touch of coconut rum in the frosting, but if no kids are in sight, you might want to use a heavier hand, because what a great combination of flavors!
Gingerbread Cakes from Pook’s Pantry. This homey, comforting traditional gingerbread recipe comes from Sissy’s nanny. These types of desserts connect us to earlier generations. What better time to reconnect with those memories than at Thanksgiving? Enjoy with a cup of tea and a favorite story.
Clementine Cake from Pook’s Pantry. After a rich, heavy meal, a slice of sunshine might be just what the doctor ordered. How lovely to see glazed, thinly sliced clementines crowning a tender buttermilk cake flavored with clementine zest and juice. What a bright ending to your Thanksgiving meal!
Rose Apple Pie from Comfortably Domestic. Kirsten offers another light dessert for Thanksgiving. This rose apple pie uses minimal seasoning to let the flavor of the apples shine through. Lightly poached in a syrup, thinly sliced apples become just pliable enough to double as petals. Pack rows and rows into an all-butter crust and then brush the petals with leftover syrup, and you have a light, 1-crust version of a classic apple pie. Such a pretty ending!
