Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes

Although the turkey is the star of the show, it is definitely the dessert that gets all the attention. I often like to go all out with the dessert and with falls harvest around there are plenty of options. My biggest problem is trying to decide which dessert to make as there are just too many amazing options. Despite the fact that I want to go all out on dessert I recognize the fact that the Thanksgiving meal is already a huge production and so I appreciate a dessert that can be made a day or two ahead of time.

I just wanted to say that I stumbled on your blog today and it is just so inspiring. I'm assuming the photography is your own? Of the food you have made yourself? And it just looks incredible, seriously amazing cooking. I cannot wait to try some of your recipes :) *new follower* x

Melissa Good Taste: Yes I use a hand blender for soups. It is so much easier than transferring to a full blender in batches.

Kevin said...

Helen: Yes, I make and photograph all of the food on Closet Cooking.

Helen said...

I am loving it! So many goodies!

Lu Ann said...

Oh Kevin, you naughty, naughty man! Among other goodies, you made pecan pie, the sweetest of all holiday pies, even sweeter. Who would even think of improving on a most delectable dessert?

When my pecan pie loving husband showed a wisp of rare open-mindedness so I jumped at the chance.

(We couldn't get our hands on Medjool and used Deglet Noor dates instead. They were lighter and less rich, but worked out.)

What a success! My husband loved the pie and asked for it again next year.

ps you had me at Bacon Jam.
