My biggest indulgence this holiday season, starting with Thanksgiving, has to be dessert.
Every year, my sweet tooth gets excited about the array of pies, cookies, brownies and other goodies that often line a Thanksgiving dessert table. And I never fail to find room for dessert, even though I had my fair share of turkey and sides.
While the traditional turkey feast dessert (pie) is well known, options for tasty after-dinner treats abound and come in many different forms. So don’t be afraid to try something different. You never know what might become your own holiday dessert tradition.
Here are a few that we think would be great additions to the dessert table.
