6 Thanksgiving Desserts to Make if Pie Isn’t Your Thing

-Alyson Weber

We can all agree that Thanksgiving is the best holiday ever. Problem is: you aren’t that wild about pie. It doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy dessert after feeling so stuffed that you need to unbutton your jeans. Here are six dessert recipes you’ll be thankful for!

1. No Bake Caramel Apple Cheesecake Trifles

So easy to put together and the best part is you don’t have to share your mini trifle with ANYONE. Get the recipe here.

2. Pumpkin Cookie Dough Dip

We all know the best part of making cookies is licking the cookie dough. Dip teddy grahams, ginger snap cookies, or graham crackers in this seriously delicious dip! Get the recipe here

3. Apple Dumpling Monkey Bread

Just LOOK AT THAT CHOCOLATE GLAZE ON TOP. My typical portion size: the slice in the picture that accounts for about 2/3 of the torte…obviously. Get the recipe here.
