10 Thanksgiving Desserts That Aren’t Pie
By Cooking Panda
You can coat these delicious, fresh doughnuts in cinnamon sugar, or you can work a little harder and make a simple glaze with boiled-down apple cider, butter, and confectioner’s sugar. It’s hard to imagine there being a wrong choice here.
If you want something new but are worried that you’ll miss pumpkin pie, try these crowd pleasing three layer hybrid bars and finish with the topping of your choice.
This super moist apple cake is low on fat and calories, but it doesn’t taste like it. Add lemon zest and thinly sliced apples to a low calorie cake batter.
Fusing favorites from two different holidays has never tasted better. Serve these little buttery, crunchy pecan pastries to your Thanksgiving guests and they’ll never ask for pie again.
This buttery upside-down pastry is topped with carmelized apples and is absolutely scrumptious.
It tastes like pumpkin pie, but better.
Impress your guests with this beautiful upside down cake, flavored with pomegranate molasses, orange zest, and cardamom. They’ll never know how deceptively easy it is to make. The best part is that you can make it a day in advance, and no one will ever know.
Never have to choose between pumpkin and pecan again.
Because who doesn’t love bread pudding? Update this classic dessert by adding butter, brown sugar, and pecans to make it taste like Thanksgiving. The topping gets crunchy, like a streusal, but the inside remains moist and bread pudding-y. You really can’t lose here.
These are super easy to make, but they look deceptively fancy and taste like heaven. Make them ahead so that you have plenty of time to frantically defrost the turkey you could have sworn you already prepared.
