Best Thanksgiving Desserts

My favorite Thanksgiving dessert recipes! - Bake or Break

While I’m still of the mindset that Thanksgiving is primarily about the pies, I still feel there’s room for some other desserts as well. It’s good to have a little variety, right?

Here are some of my favorite desserts to make for Thanksgiving. I’ve got cakes, cobblers, cheesecakes, and more. There are some from way back in the archives and some much more recent. And be sure to follow along with my baking adventures for a few more dessert ideas.

Enjoy! And happy Thanksgiving! (And if you still want pie, click here!)
