Stunning Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes That Aren’t Pie

Kristen Aiken

Clearly, here at HuffPost Taste, we’re big fans of pie. We all believe that pumpkin and pecan pie should be had in some form come Thanksgiving. But pie is not the only Thanksgiving dessert recipe that you should be making this year. Especially when your holiday cake and tart options look this good.

Since Thanksgiving is a holiday to celebrate bounty of harvest, the best way to honor that is, without a doubt, to make a bounty of desserts — including at least one or two from the choices below.
