Non-Traditional Thanksgiving Desserts

Posted on

This Thanksgiving, why not try some non-traditional dessert recipes? Alongside the delectable pumpkin spiced favorites and mouth-watering pecan pie, spice up your table with adventurous treats from all around the world.

The British knew what they were talking about when they invented the Sticky Toffee Pudding. Sometimes known as Sticky Date Pudding, this dessert is a dense cake with finely chopped dates and a caramel sauce. Often served with ice cream, whipped cream or custard – this pudding will have you coming back for more!

Australia is another commonwealth country with amazing desserts. The Pavlova is an Australian classic, made from a meringue base topped with whipped cream and fresh fruit. While the Southern Hemisphere usually makes Pavlova in the summer months (using strawberries, kiwi and passion fruit) you can add some Californian flair by choosing some local fall toppings like pomegranates, persimmons and late-season nectarines.

Lastly, the middle eastern classic, Baklava is a tiny bite that will bring your post-feast coffee time to life. Full of flaky pastry, nuts and honey – baklava can be cut as small or as big as you like. Keep it small and enjoy it more!
