With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it is time to start planning the menu. Obviously, the turkey will be there, but dessert is just as important. There are some traditional desserts like pumpkin pie, that are always a crowd-pleaser but sometimes it’s nice to mix it up. Here are some new desserts to serve your guests. 

Pumpkin Cupcakes

If you still want the traditional taste of pumpkin pie, but in a cake form, pumpkin-flavored cupcakes are the perfect treat. Ice them with some cream cheese icing, and a little pumpkin candy.

Pecan Pie

One pie that is delicious during every season, is pecan pie. The custard layer, combined with the pecan filling is going to leave your guests begging for more. 

Apple Crumble

As Thanksgiving falls towards the end of the harvest season, crisp apples are available by the bushel. Grab a bunch of apples, and make individual apple crumbles for your guests. Add a dollop of whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream to make this even tastier.

Gingerbread Bundt Cake

Bundt cakes are excellent dessert or coffee cakes. They’re easy to slice, and when it comes to the fall the smell of gingerbread in cake form has everyone drooling. Add a maple drizzle to the cake, and it is sure to be the star of the night.
