Last Minute Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes!

Hey there!

Thanksgiving is in 2 days, just in case you didn’t remember. (If that’s the case… it may be too late for your turkey, but it isn’t too late for dessert!)

This time of year is always extremely popular on my blog, and for good reason: my readers LOVE to bake, and want to make the BEST thing for the holidays. I’m always so touched when someone tells me they made one of my recipes for such a special occasion like Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, or Christmas. It’s so flattering and heartwarming because before I started my blog, I was always on the hunt for the perfect recipe to make my beloved family and friends during the holiday season… so I know how important it is to choose the best thing!


I’m doing a quick little round-up today of some amazing recipes of mine that are top-rated, highly popular, and just dang delicious. Pies will make an appearance, of course; but so will cakes, cookies, and other miscellaneous treats to make your big meal extra special.

The hardest part will be deciding what to make! 🙂 But if you want to know what I’m personally making for my fam on the big day, it’s pumpkin pie, butterscotch pie, and apple pie. Can’t go wrong!
