Some people really love turkey and all the fixings and side dishes that go along with it. Some of us are all about Thanksgiving dessert recipes. I am one of those people, I just want sweet treats. I love the rest of it the next day as leftovers.

Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes
I think a lot of time when you think of Thanksgiving desserts, you think of pie and pumpkin pie in particular. But there are a lot of great desserts that could take center stage this Thanksgiving.
These are some amazing desserts sure to fit your Thanksgiving plans whether you are hosting to contributing to a meal with family and friends.
There are desserts for those of us that don’t like pumpkin and desserts for those with specific dietary needs.
Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes
Dessert doesn’t happen here all the time, which makes it that special when it does. Seasonal desserts like rhubarb crisp or rhubarb crumble are extra special.
This is a light and fluffy dessert that everyone is going to enjoy. A bit sweet, so a little flavor is going to go a long way.
These are really simple to make, and I never would have thought of a dessert with Ritz crackers would be so freaking delicious. But here we are, enjoying a delicious treat made with crackers.
Super Easy Pumpkin Pie Recipe
I couldn’t imagine not whipping up a pie each year to gather the family around the table at Thanksgiving and on Halloween. You will love our super easy pumpkin pie recipe!
The Best Nanaimo Bars Recipe Ever | Canadian Dessert
Nanaimo Bars are a true Canadian delicacy and everyone should be able to experience their deliciousness!
Nantucket Cranberry Pie
It’s one of the easier holiday desserts to make. There are no pie crusts to roll, and nothing to whip. Just spread a layer of cranberries, walnuts, and sugar, then top with a batter and bake.
Easy Pecan Pie (with Williams Sonoma)
What do you think of when you hear “pecan pie”? If you think of a delicious flaky crust, and a sweet, nutty, buttery filling, then this easy pecan pie recipe is for you. Not only is it the star of any holiday table it's on, but it’s also quicker and easier than your usual pecan pie recipe.
Pumpkin Donuts with Pumpkin Filling
These pumpkin donuts are crispy, soft, and filled with a creamy pumpkin custard that tastes exactly like pumpkin pie. They’re coated in a sugar and pumpkin spice mixture. The donut dough has pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice to really amp up that pumpkin flavor!
Mini Blueberry Pies with Flaky Crust
These mini blueberry pies have a super flaky all-butter crust filled with a jammy blueberry filling. They’re much faster to make than a large blueberry pie and are oh so cute!
Canadian Butter Tarts
You may not know it, but Canadian butter tarts are a national obsession: that perfectly flaky shell, that sweet, buttery, caramel filling, all that melt-in-your-mouth goodness, and the great raisin debate…who could resist!
Vegan Apple Galette (Gluten Free)
An easy recipe for a gluten-free vegan apple galette filled with warm spices and tender apples. It’s the perfect dessert to serve during the fall or the holidays (or any time of year!).
No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifles
Layers of rich pumpkin cheesecake, real whipped cream, and graham cracker crumbs combine to create this delicious, fun no-bake fall dessert! So easy!
Apple and Cherry Crumble
Warm, gooey, fresh-out-of-the-oven apple and cherry crumble. Apple and sour cherry filling topped with brown sugar, cinnamon, and rolled oats layer. Then baked until golden and crispy.
Maple Cream Cookies
These Maple Cream Cookies have a crunchy cookie outside and are filled with sweet maple cream. These easy-to-make maple cookies are the perfect dessert.
Vegan Sticky Cinnamon Buns (with maple glaze)
Buttery and soft vegan cinnamon sticky buns or rolls with an irresistible maple glaze. You can make them with common ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.

Caramel apple pie cupcakes are a combination of three amazing desserts into one epic sweet treat. These yummy cupcakes are filled with apple pie filling and topped with a melt-in-your-mouth caramel buttercream frosting.
Best Pumpkin Bread With Cream Cheese & Chocolate Chips
Many pumpkin bread recipes are either filled with cream cheese or include chocolate chips. Since both cream cheese and chocolate chips go so well with the irresistible flavor of pumpkin, I thought I’d get crazy this year and combine both into one ultimate pumpkin treat!
Sourdough cinnamon rolls with maple vanilla glaze (vegan)
Buttery and easy sourdough cinnamon rolls are flaky and melt in your mouth. These vegan cinnamon rolls are made without yeast but an active sourdough starter. Delicious and not too sweet!
Gluten-Free Pecan Pie (corn syrup-free, refined sugar-free)
This glorious gluten-free pecan pie is adapted from my mom’s beloved Thanksgiving dessert recipe.
Pumpkin spice ice cream
Move over pumpkin pie, there's a new pumpkin spice dessert in town, and it's giving the pie a run for its money. This pumpkin spice ice cream takes the flavors of the pumpkin spice latte and elevates it to a whole new level.
Gluten Free Apple Pie
It’s hard to say which is the star of the show: the gluten-free apple pie filling perfectly smothered in a sweet layer of cinnamon and nutmeg, or the buttery-like gluten-free pie crust.
