Thanksgiving Sweets

November 20, 2009

Finally, we turn to the end of the meal. Pie usually dominates, but there are some people for whom (horror of horrors!) pie is not the dessert of choice. Here, we feature recipes from our winners and finalists for sweets that just may put those pumpkin pie cravings to rest.

Fig and Anise Clafoutis by Oui, Chef -- great made with dried figs, if you can't find fresh

Rum Apple Cake by colombedujour -- a gluten free option

Pudding Chomeur by camille -- a celebration of maple syrup

An Old Fashioned Apple Spice Cake by betteirene -- a dramatic, holiday-worthy presentation

I'm actually taking inspiration for my Thanksgiving closer from the winning recipe from the Best Tart contest!

What a great series of posts. Thank you.

How funny. I'm making that tart for a Thanksgiving appetizer. I hope we both enjoy it. It looks delicious!
