Sometimes it's fun to break out of a rut with a slightly more unusual dessert for Thanksgiving. Try one of these delectable recipes for a new twist.
Pumpkin Roll with Goat Cheese and Date Filling. A winner in our 2008 reader recipe contest, this is surprisingly easy to make and really delicious; a fun departure from pumpkin pie.
Chocolate Rapture with Roasted Pears. Again, surprisingly easy, and a gift to chocoholics everywhere. Make it at least one day ahead, then bring to room temp before serving.
Pear-Ginger Cobbler with Almond Biscuit Topping. Fun and special because they're made and served in individual ramekins, this is perfect for a smaller dinner party.
Blueberry-Apple Bread Pudding. I'm a sucker for this kind of comfort-food dessert. You can use frozen blueberries; just drain after thawing.
A delightful accompaniment to an after-meal cup of tea ... or for next morning's breakfast.
