When it comes to Thanksgiving, most people rate dessert as important as the main meal.  Whether you want to stick with a traditional pie or try something new, there are many options when thinking of Thanksgiving dessert ideas.

Thanksgiving Pies

Traditionally, pies are the go-to dessert for Thanksgiving.  Whether you choose apple, pumpkin, cherry, or peach, any pie tastes great after the turkey dinner.  Pie pastry can be tricky though, so if you are hesitant to try your hand at rolling dough for a big holiday, you can always make a graham cracker or cookie crust and use a pudding filling.  Top any pie with whipped cream and guests will love it!

Other Fruit Desserts

If pie isn't your thing but you still want to have an opportunity to make something fruity, a simple apple crisp is easy to throw together.  You could also make something like cherry kuchen bars, or blueberry crumb bars.  Dump cakes are also fast, and can easily be made low-fat by substituting diet soda for the butter.

Cakes and Cheesecakes

Many people also love to splurge on their favorite cakes and cheesecakes to celebrate the holiday.  A spring form pan allows you to try all sorts of flavored cheesecakes, including chocolate marble, pumpkin, raspberry swirl, or turtle.  Use a trifle dish to make a dessert that looks pretty and tastes divine like tiramisu, or simply layer angel food or shortbread cake squares with fruit and whipped cream.  Other Thanksgiving favorites include a pumpkin roll, or a traditional chocolate layer cake.
