10 Thanksgiving Desserts That Aren't Pie
Not everyone likes pie. And that's okay. They don't deserve to be shunned on Thanksgiving. So, in the interest of fairness (and everyone getting some gosh darn dessert), here are 10 non-pie options that are perfect for a Thanksgiving feast.
Citrus is in season now, and this Greek recipe is a great way to use any kind of orange. It's very easy, too, since there's barely any mixing. And it's kinda, sorta healthy, since the dairy in it is Greek yogurt.
This is a classic method for sweetening up apples. This one's very easy to make, too, and it's perfect if you're going for a rustic theme.
This recipe goes out to team cake. And it won first place at the L.A. County fair, so you know it's no messing around.
If you're looking for a delightful, tasty dessert that requires no dough rolling and no time chilling in the fridge, then this cranberry cobbler is the one for you. The topping, a quick and forgiving biscuit dough, gets mixed together while the cranberries bake in the oven. The dough then goes on top of the cranberries and the cobbler bakes a little longer until all the juices are bubbling.
If you're looking for something lighter than the average Thanksgiving dessert, this is a great way to go. Or, be extremely elegant and serve it as a palate cleanser.
Little individual desserts are always very cute and very appreciated. Plus, you can use store-bought puff pastry -- it's one of the few ingredients where no one can tell the difference.
For those who skip all the savory stuff, the better to fill up on desserts. It isn't a light dessert in any sense, but every perfect bite is worth the calories.
Another cake option. Well, actually, it's something of a cake/pie hybrid, since the fruit is on top. Either way, it's tasty and seasonally appropriate.
Perhaps you're trying to impress someone this Thanksgiving? Panna cotta always looks so elegant, especially topped with fruit, but in truth it's pretty simple to make.
Donuts. Fancy-sounding, Italian-named, donuts. You can't go wrong, and you can make extra and have them for breakfast on Friday.
