It just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a dessert or two. And any self-respecting Southern spread is going to have a whole slew of desserts to top off this traditional meal. It’s true, we love the turkey; we load up on the side dishes, but the Thanksgiving desserts… well, they just steal the show, beckoning to us from over at the dessert table with their promises of after-dinner delights.
Some of us don’t wait until after dinner to heed their call. We dive right in with a nibble here and there while the cooking and the visiting is going on. Others of us just wander by and breathe in deeply while carefully planing out our after-dinner dessert plates… (because it’s the holidays, we definitely plan on allowing ourselves “just a small slice” of each one). Then there are those who politely wave off the prospect of multiple desserts on one plate and just choose to have a single dessert… and another during the ballgame… and one when they visit the kitchen… Don’t even get me started on dessert for breakfast the day after…
