Favorite Fall Dessert Recipes

Favorite Fall Dessert Recipes

Pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie. They may be lovely, they may be tradition, but sometimes don’t you just wish there was another way? I’ve been crawling through Care2′s more than 300 dessert recipes looking for fresh Thanksgiving ideas, and I found a few humdingers that I can’t decide between. Here are the finalists: Three vegan and three not.

Vegan Butterscotch Mousse Pie
Vegan Quinoa Pudding
Vegan Pumpkin Pie
Butternut Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Sweet Potato Cheesecake with Ginger Pecan Crust
Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie

I don’t think I’m up for six desserts this year, how will I ever narrow it down? What are you planning on baking this Thanksgiving? Do you have any favorite dessert traditions?
