Thanksgiving Desserts

Let the baking begin! I am so excited about today’s dessert feature, unique twists on classic Thanksgiving desserts. Mini pies in jars are all the rage right now and the perfect way to store your treats. Simply remove the lid, heat the jar and top with ice cream. Stuffed with turkey? Tie up with ribbon and send the pie home with your guests as a favor.

If you’re bored with pumpkin pie, try sweet potato pie cupcakes with marshmallow cream cheese frosting, pumpkin whoopie pies, mini pumpkin pies, pumpkin parfait or even pumpkin cheesecake. The options are endless…and suddenly I’m starving!
