25 Thanksgiving Desserts That TikTok Is Drooling Over

The turkey recipe may be the main event, but the Thanksgiving desserts close the show. The “Save room for dessert” command was probably coined to make sure classic staples like pumpkin pie, apple pie, and sweet potato pie don’t go to waste after the big meal. So, no matter how good your mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, or any of your favorite Thanksgiving side dishes taste, always save room for some sweet treats. We don’t make the rules.

And it seems TikTok agrees because there are hundreds of Thanksgiving dessert ideas perfect for any fall dinner. Looking to make traditional favorites like pecan pie or caramel apple treats? Yes, the social media app has recipes for that. Tired of pumpkin pie and looking for more unexpected desserts? You can also find that.

They all look so good that you might be tempted to try them all. Go at your pace. “I like to try a new recipe or two or three every year,” says Emma Laperruque, Senior Cooking Editor at Bon Appétit. “But even as a recipe developer, I would never try to everybody new dishes.” Her suggestion: Stick with some time-tested classics for your main meal to reduce stress. That way you can have more fun experimenting with dessert.

Also, keep in mind that “not everything has to be homemade,” says Laperruque. “If making pie crust intimidates you, buy it! When you’re making so many dishes, store-bought shortcuts are crucial.”
