Thanksgiving Desserts

I promised that when I put up my Thanksgiving side dish inspiration that I would try to get up two more posts with dessert and maybe appetizers too!

Today is going to be a roundup of some of my most favorite Pinterest dessert ideas and I hope you utilize them for your Thanksgiving table :)


Southern Caramel Cake

This is probably one of my most favorite cakes I've ever had, and one that I really enjoy making!
This recipe is super sweet and moist, perfect for a Thanksgiving get-together. . . I mean, all the other dishes are rich and decadent, why not end the meal on the same note?!


Pecan Pie Bars

If you love the traditional taste of pie at Thanksgiving dinner, but you want a more modern twist (and maybe you want to feed more mouths!) then these pie bars are a great option.
I've never tried this recipe before, but it sounds very simple so it would be a great option for those who are short on cooking skills or don't have time to spend all day in the kitchen.


Cranberry Bliss Bars

If you're a basic white girl who frequents Starbucks, you probably get just as excited about these desserts as you do about the Pumpkin Spice Latte.
These bars are full of deliciousness; cranberry pieces, white chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar, and a hint of orange.
They're the best seasonal treat and not too challenging.
I probably won't be making these for Thanksgiving, but you best bet that I'm going to be making these around Christmastime!

Peach Berry Crumble

If you're looking for the easiest, most delicious, and rustic recipe to fix for your Thanksgiving dinner, then look no farther than this gem from Southern Living (my favorite place to get recipes!)
This suggests using fresh fruit, but I know for a fact that you can use de-frosted frozen peaches and blackberries and it will still taste delish!
This is a one pan dessert, so you don't have to worry about dirty-ing up your entire kitchen, but it does take about 45 minutes to cook, so prepare for that!

I hope y'all enjoyed this roundup and if you decide to cook any of these, tag me in pictures on insta at @SouthernStylista, I would love to see them!

Until next time. . .
