Here’s the thing: I love baking and I hate pumpkin pie, the epitome of Thanksgiving desserts. Even though Thanksgiving for most people is steeped in tradition and must-have dishes, I am always wanting to try out something I haven’t made before. Yes, there are the standards that must appear on the table: mashed potatoes, turkey, gravy, and my mom’s cranberry sauce. But anything else is fair game, especially desserts! I probably peruse several dozen cooking magazines, blog sites, and cookbooks leading up to Thanksgiving to get inspired and find the perfect desserts for the upcoming feast. Cause it is a feast, and you need at least 3-4 desserts, right?
