I have such a sweet tooth and even more so during the holidays. It's so hard to resist any kind of dessert but there's something about the holiday season that makes it all the more difficult to say no! Each year, there's certain desserts that we always make no matter what - chocolate chip cookies, magic cookie bars, apple crumb pie, etc. But I also love to find and try new recipes and new things to bake and what better place to go than Pinterest?!

There is nothing better than getting ready for Thanksgiving, lighting a candle and baking - here's some of my favorite, irresistible and indulgent desserts to bake for Thanksgiving for your friends and family to enjoy after the big meal!
