Happy Thanksgiving week! Here is a round up of all of my favorite Thanksgiving dessert recipes: pies, pie crust and toppings, holiday cakes and cheesecake, all in one place.
Tip: pie crust can be made ahead and refrigerated for three days, or frozen a month, before using. You could make a double recipe now and be set for pies and quiches through Christmas.
First the Pumpkin Pie Recipes:
“Real pumpkin” made with a roasted sugar pie pumpkin, eggs, cream, milk, fresh ginger and spices.
Spicy Pepita (pumpkin seed) Brittle.
Crust “cookies” (kid-cook friendly.)
Gluten-Free pumpkin pie options.
Chestnut Dessert Recipes:
Chestnut Bundt Cake (Also gluten-free.)
Caramel Torte with Chocolate and Pecans.
Oh wait, there’s more pumpkin?
Pumpkin New York Cheesecake with Cranberry Gelee Topping.
