What do you have for Thanksgiving dessert? I know pumpkin pie is traditional but what is traditional in your family?

There is a restaurant that we used to go to as a family when I was growing up. It is a sort of 1950's diner crossed with a steak house. Anyway they make the best chocolate cream pie I have ever tasted. She we order a chocolate cream, pumpkin and Dutch apple pie from there each year. Can't wait!

We have a local 5k race on thanksgiving morning. We count on my DS placing. The prize is a pie from an amazing local restaurant. . Actually he guards his pie and eats it all himself.

We have pumpkin, apple and pecan pie along with cheesecake.

Pecan pie is expected at Thanksgiving and Christmas! We don't even do pumpkin.

The pecan tree is the state tree of Texas. What else would we expect of a true Texan?

But we have strawberry cake. My birthday is a couple of weeks after Thanksgiving, so starting when I was away at college, we started to celebrate my birthday on thanksgiving since the whole family wouldn’t be together again until Christmas. My brother does make pumpkin pie, but most people prefer my strawberry birthday cake. We have been doing this now for thirty years. It is truly a family tradition.

The last few years my aunt has taken to making chocolate cream pie as well as pumpkin. Also the most delicious pumpkin bars are out to snack on throughout the day.

We have pecan pie, cheese cake and apple pie. My mom always buys me a little pumpkin pie since I am the only one who likes it.

We have a pecan pie and sometimes pumpkin. We order a cake in the shape of a turkey from one of the specialty markets in our area, and we also get cookies from them.

We're not big pumpkin pie fans so we usually do a variety cheesecake. I was in Lidl for the first time yesterday and they had them for $8.99. I also love chocolate fudge pie.

My family has a steamed cranberry pudding, made with molasses. It is rather like British plum pudding, but much simpler to make (and it doesn’t come out of the pan in one piece, so it ain’t pretty!). I serve it with a sauce made with cream, butter, sugar, and vanilla.

My mother always made it...and her mother got the “secret” recipe from a family friend. So it is now 4 generations...

We always have a from scratch pumpkin pie (roasted sugar punkins and handmade pie crust) and usually an apple pie, too. Homemade whipped cream, too!

I'm super snobby about pies!

I'm not a pie fan, but for some reason I do eat it on Thanksgiving. We have homemade pumpkin with real whipped cream (my favorite), pecan pie and caramel apple pie.

We have date nut bars, pie, and another cookie or 2.

But date nut bars are a must.

Definitely pumpkin pie and many years I also make a pecan pie because my mom's SO doesn't care for pumpkin pie ( plus I love pecan pie and will take just a sliver and then send the rest home with him).

We usually have pumpkin plus an apple or peach pie and a birthday cake for DH since his birthday usually falls over Thanksgiving weekend.

It's kind of like a brownies in a pie crust. It's been one of my family's favorites for many years.

We love pumpkin pie, too, but why isn't chocolate a thing for Thanksgiving? Last year I made a chocolate lasagne.

I have a recipe that is super easy with pumpkin and yellow cake mix. I make it around the holiday, too.

Maybe you would make a pumpkin cake with raisins and nuts in it.
