No matter what your favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner is, you’ll want to save room for dessert with these 20 Thanksgiving dessert recipes!

Thanksgiving is only TWO DAYS AWAY!  What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner?  For me, it’s definitely the sides and the desserts.  I could totally skip the turkey, load up on stuffing and casseroles, and save room for dessert!  Normally, I’m not much of a dessert person, but I am definitely a pie person!  You know there’s going to be at least one pie on the Thanksgiving dessert table.  I’ll take a sliver of pumpkin pie and a sliver of apple pie, please and thank you!

Last week, I shared a recipe for No-Bake Pumpkin Eggnog Cheesecake.  Although it’s not pie, it’s definitely going to show up again on our holiday table!  Thanksgiving is all about those holiday flavors.  Some are traditional, classic recipes shared year after year and some have modern, updated twists.  If you need a last minute holiday dessert, check out these 20 Thanksgiving dessert recipes!  It’s your last chance to work one or more of these into your holiday menu!  Then, keep these recipes on hand for the rest of your holiday gatherings!
