Yes, Thanksgiving has arrived. Finally, the day you have been waiting on all year long. Roasted turkey, Chicken & Dressing, Sweet Potato Casserole— all spectacular dishes and super delicious. But, where’s the dessert?
We all know we save just a little bit of room for a dessert or two. And for some, it’s the real showstopper of the day. Before dinner, I walk around the dessert table and note how many of those sweet treats I might indulge in at the end of my meal.
In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with too many Southern Desserts on Thanksgiving day. I usually have to try just a little bit of everyone’s fabulous sweets, you know, so I don’t hurt any feelings. 🙂
I’ve listed a few of our family favorites to enjoy this holiday season. Some are traditional, and some just always seem to show up on every occasion. Of course, you can’t be wrong with any dessert for any gathering as long as you all love it. Plus, tuck a few back for breakfast the next day! Oh, yes!
Here’s a list of my favorite Southern Desserts for Thanksgiving. I hope you find something you and your family will enjoy this year and for years to come. Happy Thanksgiving!
Southern Sweet Potato Pie
Simply Southern Sweet Potato Pie
Simply Southern Sweet Potato Pie is a favorite in our house. It’s made with basic ingredients and turns out perfect every time. Try it with a dollop of whipped cream for an added touch.
These Strawberry Cheesecake Bars have a deliciously sweet glaze that sits on top of a rich and creamy center and has the most wonderful buttery crust. This dessert will not disappoint your family or your guest. It's perfect for any special occasion, potluck, barbecue cookout, or just for a treat on the weekend. Enjoy!
Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake is a perfectly moist, lemony cake with sweet juicy blueberries. This cake is topped with a sweet cream cheese frosting that sets it apart from other cakes. It is a beautiful dessert for any occasion.
Chocolate Lush is a creamy, luscious layered dessert with chocolate pudding, cream cheese, and cool whip on top of a graham cracker crust. A fabulous dessert for potlucks, get-togethers, or just anytime you need a chocolate fix.
