Serve the best Thanksgiving Desserts with your holiday meal this year. Of course, you’ll find apple and pumpkin pie, but there are so many more ideas, including cakes, cookies, and more. You can keep with the classics or find something new – and they are all gluten free!
Gluten Free Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes
In my family, we usually stick classic apple pie and pumpkin pie for our Thanksgiving desserts. But there are so many more options to round out your feast. So I’m going to challenge all of us to think outside the pie pan this year and try something new!
Here are some ideas for you to consider:
Pies, Tarts, and Crisps
Pie may be the most traditional Thanksgiving dessert, but don’t forget about its cousins. Tarts are similar in that they also have a crust and a filling. Crisps or crumbles lask the crust, but the fruit filling is still there with a butter topping. And even cheesecakes with their graham cracker crusts can fall into this category.

Don’t forget about cake on Thanksgiving. From bundts to sheet cakes to layer cakes, and even the quintessential pumpkin roll, you can find many that feature your favorite fall and holiday flavors.
Cookies, Brownies, and Bars
If you have to make dessert for a large crowd or just want something as a little sweet nibble, cookies and bars fit the bill. You can even double the batch and freeze some to pull out again at Christmas.
Other Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes
Sweet dips, parfaits, even ice cream can find its plate on the holiday table. You don’t have to limit yourself to the traditional baked treats.
