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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
