Thanksgiving Desserts? ?

Because Thanksgiving is getting closer and closer my mom and I are scrambling for recipes. We need a couple of good (and reasonably healthy) desserts. Any ideas? We were thinking of a Honey Cake, we found the recipe on Sara Snow's website, anything else we should try?

Thank you in advance:)

    These are really good.

    Miniature Cheesecakes

    1 1/2 packages (8 oz size) cream cheese

    1/2 cup sugar

    2 eggs

    3/4 tsp vanilla


    1 cup sour cream

    1/4 cup sugar

    1/2 tsp vanilla

    strawberry or pineapple preserves

    Let cream cheese soften in a medium size bowl; add 1/2 cup sugar, and cream together thoroughly.

    Add eggs, on at a time, beating well after each addition.

    Add 3/4 tsp vanilla and beat until smooth and creamy.

    Place paper cupcake (foil if you have them) in a muffin tin and using a teaspoon, fill each one 2/3 full. Bake in a preheated 300 F oven 20 to 25 minutes. Cool 10 minutes (cakes will cave in slightly in center).

    Make topping: In a small bowl, thoroughly mix sour cream, sugar and vanilla. Using a teaspoon top each with a small amount, enough to cover the top. Top with small amount of preserves in center of each cake. Return pan to oven and bake an additional 10 minutes. Makes about 2-3 dozen.

    There is a recipe called Pumpkin Yum that I love. My friend makes it with a yellow cake mix, canned pumpkin.....etc. If you can't find the recipe, leave a note for me under your question and I'll call my friend for it. You serve it in a 13 x 9" pan, and she always brings two because it's so good! Serve with whipped cream. It's like a cake and pie combo :)

    Mine is similar to Chef Bette but not as many ingredients.

    1 pkg. deluxe white cake mix

    1 (6 oz.) pkg. fresh frozen coconut

    1 c. milk

    1 c. sugar

    1 (12 oz.) carton non-dairy whipped topping

    Prepare cake mix as directed on package for sheet cake recipe. While cake is baking, combine half of the coconut with the milk and sugar; set aside. Remove cake from oven and pour coconut mixture evenly over cake. Cover with foil and refrigerate 3 to 4 hours or overnight. Spread whipped topping over cake. Sprinkle with remaining coconut. Store in refrigerator.

    Serves 12 to 15.


    1 (11 oz.) pkg. no-bake cheesecake (including filling and graham cracker

    crumbs for crust)

    1 c. canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)

    1 to 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

    Whipped cream

    Follow package directions to make crust, but use a 9 inch square pan. Save some of the crumbs and use as a garnish on top of completed cheesecake.

    I just made this dessert this morning - it tastes amazing!

    Cranberry Bars - the square ones in the pic. Fast and easy to make. Note: I only used 1/2 tsp. of the ginger, and that was plenty.

    I'm bringing pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin pie and a big bowl of whipped cream to my daughter's. To hell with the calories, it's one day. However, you could go to for healthier desserts.
