Thanksgiving dessert doesn’t always have to be about pumpkin pie sometimes you can use Thanksgiving turkey for dessert inspiration. Turkey is probably one of the most well known staples of Thanksgiving. In reality though, the desserts served rarely have to do a whole lot with turkeys! There is usually pumpkin pie and all kinds of other delicious goodies, but they aren’t very festive for the Thanksgiving holiday. This year, instead of just serving up the traditional pumpkin pie, I decided to do something a little different! I put together this list of 25 turkey themed treats so you can serve something a little more festive this Thanksgiving! Any one of these would be a great addition to the classic pumpkin pie, but with a Thanksgiving twist! If you need some Thanksgiving quotes to inspire your Instagram click here.
