Tired of plain ol’ pumpkin pie for your dessert every year? Here are six Thanksgiving desserts that your family will love.

Applesauce cake:

The seasonal sweetness of apple sauce  and brown butter maple buttercream being put together in this dish, this  treat will surely bring in the brisk autumn feeling at home. Topped  off with light powdered sugar, a drizzle of caramel, or  a dollop of whipped cream, it is sure to be a hit.

Pecan Pie Bars:

Here is a portable treat that is a lot easier to carry around more than Pecan pie! With a brown press-in shortbread crust, and maple and honey filling, you’ve got crusty on the outside and gooey on the inside.

Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake:

You just can’t go wrong with having a  pumpkin baked treat! These cute little bites of graham cracker crust, and that warm, sweet pumpkin taste, can easily be baked in little muffin liners. They’re small, but got a mighty pumpkin taste! And of course, dollop with some whipped cream.

Here are more tiny bars filled with autumn  sweet treats because they are so cute! If you’re  bringing some sweet little treats to your thanksgiving dinner, here’s how to impress your peers! For the crust, shortbread dough. You might just enjoy this more than apple pie.

If you’re looking for a cinnamon-y treat this thanksgiving,  pour yourself a glass of eggnog and prepare yourself for the Christmas spirit with these Pumpkin Snickerdoodle  Cookies! With the perfect combination of pumpkin spice and pumpkin puree, this is the perfect way to say your goodbyes to fall, and hello winter!

And last but not least, cheesecake lovers, this ones for you.  If you’re looking for a super fancy fall-filled dessert, then you  better smash those graham crackers, slice those apples, and.. try not to eat the caramel before you put it on, because this Caramel Apple Cheesecake is topped with loads of caramel! With every bite, you’ll feel like you’re at your state fall festival again, with that sweet, warm, buttery, caramel apple taste.
