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!

It’s Thanksgiving week! Everybody loves a turkey and stuffing but let’s be honest, the best part is dessert. The kids are out of school for Thanksgiving break and I’m betting that you could use a break. Why not try these kid-friendly dessert ideas that they can help you out with? They are the perfect projects to keep the kids occupied and add a little something unique to your Thanksgiving feast.
