Every year on a Thursday in November, we gather with friends and family for a day of cooking, laughter, and of course, eating. Without fail, my mom makes the joke, “I cooked for 12 hours, and everyone ate in less than 20 minutes!” Second to the company, the most important thing about Thanksgiving is the food. We cook our turkeys and potatoes every November, but then what do we close the night with? Dessert, of course! Not to be overlooked, dessert can make or break your Thanksgiving. These unique Thanksgiving desserts are twists on your favorite classics, and sure to impress!
