Different Dessert Ideas For Thanksgiving

By November 12, 2013

Follow me on:

Peking Dust Pumpkin pie is the traditional Thanksgiving dessert. But what if you want something lighter after feasting on turkey?
Steamed Pears with Honey is a great choice, particularly since pears are known to aid digestion. In this recipe, Asian or Bartlett pears are filled with honey and gently steamed. Another possibility is Hot Bananas With Coconut Milk. This Indonesian-inspired dessert is quite easy to make - bananas are simmered in coconut milk spiced with sugar and cinnamon.

If you're making a classic chestnut stuffing and have leftover chestnuts, Peking Dust (pictured in the photo) combines ground chestnut with whipped cream and sugar. Top the Peking Dust with Maraschino cherries, candied walnuts, or whatever you wish.
