Thanksgiving Desserts Everyone Will Save Room For
The turkey. The stuffing. The potatoes. The gravy. These are the delicious foods we imagine when we are patiently waiting for the ultimate day of feasting. We smell the foods cooking all day, making us drool with anticipation. Thanksgiving is the day that we feel less guilty about going back for seconds, even thirds. It is socially acceptable, and expected, to stuff our faces, usually until we can no longer move.
As much as everyone loves Thanksgiving food, the dishes we all look forward to the most are the desserts! How can you possibly be thinking about desserts after all of that delicious food? These are some amazing desserts that you will definitely make sure you save room for!
Having brownies at thanksgiving is not a new concept. It is even common to add chocolate chips, marshmallows, or peanut butter to give them a yummy twist. This typically does not change the overall tone of the brownie, just adds more sweetness. While I agree that those are still delicious, they are not very exciting.
Adding tahini to these brownies is groundbreaking. They are decadent and have a delightful nutty sesame flavor. Not only will everyone make room for these brownies, they will be begging you for the recipe!
Carrot cake. Talk about a classic dessert. This simple recipe will have you looking forward to making it. The best part about this recipe is that it is a loaf, and that means you can make enough to share with a crowd, or just for yourself. You will be able to satisfy your craving without having an entire cake to tempt you. The loaf can be single served while keeping the pieces fresh and moist. To really take this delicious carrot cake loaf to the top, finish it off with cream cheese frosting (don’t worry, there is still plenty of room for that) and a few sprinkles of cinnamon. Delicious.
Pecan and pumpkin are both flavors that epitomize the autumn season. Bringing them together in this special treat is a great opportunity for Thanksgiving Day. The delicious pecan pumpkin bread is a nice sweet treat that is not too heavy, so you will be sure to find room for this after your big Thanksgiving feast.
This recipe is so versatile, it is best as a dessert, but you could eat this as a quick breakfast, snack on it while you are waiting for the dinner to cook, or even pair it with a cup of coffee in the evening when you are looking for a pick-me-up but you don’t have the room for anything too heavy. This is best served warm with a smidge of butter.
Thanksgiving just isn’t Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie. However, this recipe will have you considering other possibilities. A pumpkin pie crisp is a classic with a little twist. It will send your taste buds on an adventure as you taste the nostalgic pumpkin pie filling, a nice layer of crispness, and finished off with creamy, sweet vanilla ice cream.
These Hong Kong egg tarts may not be a tradition for your Thanksgiving dinner, but they should definitely be added to your menu! This egg tart recipe is so simple you can make it at your own home instead of going to a restaurant. If you have not had this flaky crusted, delicious custard filled dessert, you are in for a treat.
Although this is a very simple recipe, it should be followed closely. The measurements should be exact, and not an eyeball amount. Your tart will be best enjoyed fresh out of the oven!
