Make 10 Thanksgiving Desserts Ahead

1.Apple-Pie Bread

Apple pie's fragrant spices and delicate baked apple pieces make it a healthful after-dinner dessert.

2.Cranberry Crumble Bars

Cranberry-orange bars freeze well. Make a batch and freeze it so you always have a healthy dessert when guests arrive.

3.Coconut-Rum Pumpkin Pie

This Thanksgiving pie combines cinnamon, nutmeg, rum, and coconut for a tropical twist.

4.Custard Pecan Pie

As delicious as the conventional pie, this one has less sugar. Brown sugar and cane syrup, a toasted alternative to corn syrup or molasses, sweeten the pie.

5.Pumpkin Zucchini Bread

This pumpkin zucchini bread combines pumpkin and zucchini bread perfectly. 

6.Frozen Pumpkin Mousse Pie

Pumpkin pie is a Thanksgiving staple, but it's great to mix things up.

7.Brown Butter Sweet Potato Pie

Instead of cooking sweet potato pies, these root veggies are roasted to concentrate taste.

8.Carob Molasses Cake

Though we love baklava, we've found a new Lebanese dessert. This anise-flavored cake is sweetened with carob molasses.

9.Spiced Pumpkin Cookie

The strong flavors of molasses, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg make these healthy pumpkin cookies wonderful without butter and using whole-wheat flour. 

10.Fried Apple Pie Roll

The egg roll wrappers in this healthy apple pie save calories and the hassle of spreading out dough.
