15 Last-Minute Thanksgiving Desserts, Because Everything's *Totally* Fine
If you’re hosting Thanksgiving, you’ve got a lot on your plate: roast the perfect bird, set the table, whip out dozens of pillowy rolls, pick up the wine, find enough serving spoons. And even if you’re a super-duper planner with spreadsheets and seat assignments, things fall through the cracks. For my family, that slip-up always seems to be dessert.
Maybe it’s because no one in my family considers themselves a “baker,” but more often than not our Thanksgiving morning involves a last-minute pie run (with an added ice cream stop) to Walmart. This year, I’m determined to be a better planner, to make a dessert as worthy as the turkey.
A Vegan Thanksgiving Menu So Delicious & Hearty, Everyone Will Want Seconds
Any person who says that turkey is the star of Thanksgiving dinner has never been invited to vegan-cook-extraordinaire Gena Hamshaw's celebration. Hamshaw makes vegan Thanksgiving look not only easy to pull off, but also absurdly delicious, creamy, and hearty.
"As tempting as it was—always is—to create a Thanksgiving menu that consists of 60% sweet potatoes and 35% bread-y things (with 5% saved for dessert), I was happy that the Menu Maker prompted me to include green things (hello, tahini roasted broccoli) and one crispy salad with carrot ribbons and avocado. The heavenly oatmeal molasses rolls are heavenly indeed, and don't let the egg and butter deter you if you're vegan. I've made them many times over omitting the egg (no need to replace it) and using vegan butter—Earth Balance is my favorite."
