Thanksgiving Week Special: Desserts from Southern Bite

Thanksgiving is officially a week away today, and if your menu is still coming together, we’ve got what we need thanks to our recipe contributor Stacey Little of On his site, he has all the tips you need for a crowd-pleasing turkey, including how to spatchcock that bird, and the best way to slow cook the perfect turkey breast. Plus, we’ve shared a couple few side items to fill out the meal. But no Thanksgiving is complete without dessert!

Pumpkin, sweet potato and pecan may dominate the holiday pie selection, but there’s another “p” that deserves a spot on the dessert table and that’s peanuts! Or, more specifically, peanut butter. Stacey’s recipe for Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Pie is the perfect mix of sweet and savory, and it’s certain there won’t be a crumb remaining in the pie pan!

If the pie quotient is already filled, then why not bring cookies to the party? These Easy Cornflake Cookies are a throwback recipe that’s sure to bring back memories for the well-seasoned guests in the crowd. And for anyone experiencing these for the first time, they’re sure to become a family favorite that’s requested every year!

For these next two desserts, don’t forget to pick up some vanilla ice cream. Autumn means apples, and there’s no better way to enjoy this fruit of the season than in a warm, yummy crisp topped with a dollop of ice cream.

We know, we know — peaches are a summer treat. But just because the calendar reads November, that’s not reason enough to leave cobblers in the past. This recipe for Mom’s Peach Cobbler is our all-time most watched recipe on YouTube, and there’s good reason for it. Make it this Thanksgiving, and you’ll transport your guests back to warmer days.
