Looking for a great dairy-free dessert

This Thanksgiving, I'm in the market for a few fabulous dairy-free desserts. I'm already planning to make a bunch of olive-oil brownies, but I'd love to also bake up some other great treats. Any suggestions?

P.S. They don't need to be vegan!

I have an entire blog of great dairy-free desserts, www.couldntbeparve.com, feel free to check it out. For the traditionalists there are recipes for dairy-free (parve) pecan and pumpkin pies, as well as all kinds of other thanksgiving desserts like pumpkin cream puffs or pumpkin pot de creme. Let me know if you have something specific in mind and I can help get you a recipe.

lots of pies can be dairy free. And they're so traditional for Thanksgiving.

Do you have a favorite non-dairy crust recipe?? I'm willing to use margarine if it's worked well for you in the past, but I wonder whether there is a stellar oil-based short crust out there that could be even better...

I love this "marmalade" cake recipe from Orangette -- a very fragrant and moist almond/citrus/olive oil cake:

Poached pears in wine or many other kinds of dairy-free sauces.

Ajerusalemartichoke- as far as non dairy crusts go, I'd use shortening (but go for one of the healthier options that are now available at whole foods and the like). You can pretty much Sub all shortening for the butter in a crust that calls for both. You may also poke around the Internet to see if anyone ha a recipe for a crust that uses coconut oil. Could e great with pumpkin, though I've never tried it. Finally some of the press in crusts use oil--I think Amanda has a recipe on here (for herpleach tart), and if all that fails, you am always make a graham cracker crust with coconut oil or margarine--though, I personally try to stay away from the latter.

Non pie: there's a great vegan chocolate mousse recipe on this site (one of the genius recipes), lots of quick breads only use oil, and I recently made the soft pumpkin chocolate chip cookies from Merrill. They and out perfectly, though next time, I plan to Sub out the hoc plate chips for a mix of white chocolate chips and dried cranberries.
