thanksgiving desserts not pumpkin

We need some non-pumpkin Thanksgiving desserts for our guests, am I right?  We all have at least one: that friend or family member who doesn't especially like pumpkin. Or worse, who actively HATES it.


I can remember Thanksgivings of yore where my kids full-on, red-faced, gagged and choked when we tragically tried to get them to politely eat the pumpkin pie our hosts worked so hard on. Embarrassing for all of us. And to what end?


In truth, many kids have trouble with pumpkin pie's semi-solid texture and kinda weird smell. Usually they grow out of it - but often not before some especially uncomfortable moments at the Thanksgiving table.


Pumpkin can be pretty polarizing. But, yet, we seem to feel compelled to serve it at Thanksgiving.  We can't seem to help ourselves!


Hence this collection of pumpkin-free Thanksgiving desserts and Thanksgiving treats. Currently, these are pretty non-traditional Thanksgiving desserts - but hopefully not for long!  Because even if you adore pumpkin, who wouldn't love another delicious option?
