The Most Delicious American Desserts To Serve for Thanksgiving

November 14, 2021
It's no secret that on Thanksgiving Day, turkey is the king of the dinner table. The main course, the pièce de résistance, you can't have Thanksgiving without any turkey! But, this poultry dish shouldn't be the only thing you have to think about when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner. The turkey is important for this American holiday, sure, but so are the desserts too! After finishing up the turkey, it's the dessert that many will expect to be just as delicious. But what should you serve? What American desserts would work well after a hefty helping of turkey? These might sound great!

Pumpkin Pie

Anything pumpkin isn't just a Thanksgiving staple, it's also an autumn staple. It starts with Halloween at the end of October with Jack-o'-lanterns, pumpkin-induced Halloween treats, and the like. Then, come November, pumpkins are made into sweet pies to serve on Thanksgiving Day. What's so great about this American dessert is that it's not too sweet that only kids will enjoy. Pumpkin pie has the right amount of sweetness that makes it such a treat for adults too. And when served with whipped cream, the kick of the pumpkin spice lightens up, making for a more delightful flavor.

Sweet Potato Pie

Not into pumpkin pie? Well, how about sweet potato pie? Just like the former, sweet potato pie has the right amount of sweetness that doesn't make it too saccharine. Made with (brown) sugar and spice and tastes like everything's nice, it has a rich flavor that even the most sophisticated palate is bound to delight in. And let's not forget the fact that it's healthy too! It's no secret that sweet potatoes are considered even healthier than standard potatoes. It's even known to aid in weight loss too! As long as you don't indulge in too many slices of sweet potato pie, you don't have to worry about gaining too much weight with this dessert!

Apple Cobbler

Now, let's focus on the actual sweet desserts this time; the type that the little ones can't wait to enjoy! Right off the bat, there's Apple Cobbler. You simply can't celebrate Thanksgiving Day without any apples. Of course, when it comes to traditional American desserts, apple pie will always come to mind first. But then you already had pumpkin and sweet potato pie. Why not go for something different with apples? Say, a cobbler! In Pennsylvania, where the bustling city of Philadelphia serves as the capital, their own Dutch-style apple cobbler will knock anyone's socks off during Thanksgiving dinner!

New York Cheesecake

As far as New York snacks and treats go, the city's own brand of cheesecake is the sweetest of them all. Light, airy, and cheesy but with a crumbly crust that tastes oh so good, it'd make for a great dessert for Thanksgiving dinner, even if you're not in the Big Apple yourself! What makes it so appropriate for this particular holiday feast is that it's fulfilling enough that you still get that after-dinner sweet sensation but it won't be too much as well. After the turkey, the yams, and whatnot, no matter how full you feel, you can still have room for some New York cheesecake!

Smores

Autumn, the season of Thanksgiving, is always a great time to go camping. The cool breeze and the falling leaves provide the right atmosphere to be one with nature. However, during Thanksgiving, you'll have to celebrate the day with your family and friends in your own home. As much as you might want to go out and explore, this is the holiday's tradition. But that doesn't mean you can't bring in the camping spirit into your Thanksgiving menu! Another American treat you can serve as dessert for this holiday is a plate of smores. Melted marshmallows and chocolate in between graham crackers have a childlike sweetness to them that both the young and old might enjoy!

Deep-Fried Oreos

Although the Americans didn't invent cookies, they did invent some of the best kinds of cookies out there. The most famous and arguably most American of which is the Oreo. The sandwich cookie is a heavy favorite for the young and old alike, making it a great addition to any holiday dessert menu. But serving Oreos as is would be boring. Even if you provide milk, it won't make for a worthwhile after-dinner treat during Thanksgiving. So instead of just putting them out on a plate, why not deep-fry them with pancake batter? Sprinkle in some powdered sugar or top it with whipped cream and you have a winner!

Shortbread Cookies

While Christmas has the gingerbread cookie, you can say that Thanksgiving has the shortbread cookie. Although the latter isn't actually exclusive to the American holiday, it's become a classic American treat just the same. And when else, apart from the 4th of July, would a traditional American dessert be best to serve than on Thanksgiving? If you think they're too plain, you can always add some icing, powders sugar, sprinkles, and more to them! But for those who feel full but still want something sweet, they'll likely appreciate shortbread cookies just as they are!

An underrated truth about Thanksgiving dinner is that dessert is just as important as the turkey, cranberries, yams, and more! What sweet treat you'll serve at the end of the meal can make all the difference! It's better to stick to American classics on this one.

Just make sure you go for a luxury home with a big enough dinner table that you can serve as many American desserts as you want!
