Thanksgiving Dessert
November 12, 2012 at 5:15 PM

What are your favorite Thanksgiving desserts? I'm baking a pecan pie, but if my niece comes, I have to make something else, too, because she's allergic to nuts. I can't decide what else I want to make, but it needs to be kid-friendly.

    I'm making pumpkin and cherry pies along with a gingerbread pumpkin trifle this year. 

    In the past, I made a cranberry swirl cheesecake that I really liked.  Pumpkin cheesecake is great, too!

    The apple oatmeal crisp recipe I posted in recipes is pretty good-and kid friendly.

    I'd vote for pumpkin, cherry or sweet potato.

    I do pumpkin pie.  Just be very cautious with cross contamination.  Can she be in the room when others are eating Pecan pie?

     My favorite is sweet potato pie, but a trifle would be good as well.

    If she's under 10 yrs, I'd make a banana split pie. If she's older, I'd make cheesecake - cherry topping with chocolate curls.
