You're going to love these Unique Thanksgiving Desserts! I am happiest when my recipes are a little unexpected, and hearing "Oooh--what is THAT?!" when you set down one of these beauties after Thanksgiving dinner is the best!
Don't feel like serving the same old thing after Thanksgiving dinner this year? Here are 20+ Unique Thanksgiving Desserts that will have your guests impressed! From cookies to pies to cream puffs, there's something here for everyone!
So what makes a recipe unique? This roundup of Unique Thanksgiving Desserts includes many combinations of flavors that maybe you haven't seen before, or perhaps ingredients used in a different way (like in my Caramel Apple Angel Food Cake)!
Cookies & Bars
Cookies and bars tend to be rather humble in the baking world--but not these! Each of these cookie recipes is rather unexpected, in the best possible way!
Cakes & Cupcakes
Cakes and cupcakes are definitely crowd-pleasers, and these unique recipes are no exception! Serve up something your Thanksgiving guests haven't tasted before!

I've made so many cream puff recipes that they get their own section (and these are just the Thanksgiving-worthy ones)! I love how a cream puff is a (delicious) blank canvas for whatever flavors you can dream up!
Sometimes it's nice to put a twist on tradition (Apple Date Pie) or to shake things up completely with something never seen before (Pumpkin Coconut Pie)! I also threw in a couple galettes--not to be overlooked with their easier-than-pie crust and amazing flavors!
More Unique Thanksgiving Desserts
Last but *definitely* not least, here are all the recipes that didn't quite fit into a category. My personal favorite is the Caramel Apple Shortcakes made with cornmeal biscuits!!
