We're all about pie here. We love apple pie and pecan pie and pumpkin pie and all of the Thanksgiving pies, ever. But sometimes -- deep breath -- pie just isn't enough. Three pies just isn't enough. Because this is a holiday, people, and we want every dessert that there ever was. We want bundt cakes and cheesecakes and cookies and puddings, and then we want seconds, thirds, and fourths.

Here are 10 desserts for a properly-balanced Thanksgiving.
