Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes on

I come from Canada so my family and I are celebrating Thanksgiving today. Thanksgiving isn’t celebrated here in the UK but we’ll be having a Thanksgiving dinner this evening. This week I shared a post about some of the Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes – aside from yummy pumpkin pie – that my family and I enjoy on Thanksgiving. You can always pin this post for next month if you celebrate later in the year – and of course it doesn’t have to be Thanksgiving for you to make any of these!
