DealDash’s Thanksgiving Desserts That Aren’t Pies


Thanksgiving is coming, it’s pie time! However, not everyone likes pie. Here are a few suggestions from DealDash for the non-pie lovers out there.

When you think of Thanksgiving dessert, you think of a slice of pie with whip cream or a side of ice cream. It’s been the standard for decades. We’d like to offer the chance to mix things up a bit this year. Whether you’re a master in the kitchen or someone who likes to keep it simple, we’ve got the solution for you. Read on for some ideas from DealDash.

Skip the Pie, Keep the Pumpkin

Some people are really attached to their traditions, so we’ll start with a few options that are close to the original. A quick search will find great recipes for pumpkin pie brownies that will almost melt in your mouth. For what it’s worth, I’d eat a good pumpkin roll every day of the year if given the option. Adding the chocolate flavor to your traditional pumpkin can really set it apart. If you’re more of an apple person, you could try apple dumplings.

Everyone Likes Cake

For those who are a bit more adventurous, you may want to look at Nutella Butter Cake recipes. This cake looks more like a brownie when you cut it up. And it may be one of the richest desserts you’ll ever taste. You could opt for something that will impress the crowd. Churros are much easier to make than people realize. Because you’re making something “different” you’ll impress a lot of people.

Cookies for Everyone

If you’re looking to keep it simple this year, you can opt for the classics. Cookies are always a safe option. Whether you prefer a classic chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin, you can’t go wrong. Just be sure that you know if anyone has allergies. I’m also a big fan of cheesecake. It’s something that you could make on your own, but it’s easy to find a good variety pack in the store. It’s always nice when you can buy one thing and get multiple flavors.

DealDash Cooks: Easy Apple Pie

If your kitchen is anything like mine, it’s overrun with apples lately! Here is a quick and easy apple pie recipe that is delicious and won’t take too much time to prepare.

Do you like apple pie? Who doesn’t? The best apple pie is homemade, of course, but who has hours to make dough, slice apples, and all of the other little chores that it takes to make a delicious homemade apple pie? Here is a quick and easy recipe that tastes just as good as a classic apple pie.


1 Box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box (This is the big shortcut – the crust!)

  • 8 Medium apples – peeled and thinly sliced (Another time-saving tip is to use the mandoline to slice your apples. That way it’s fast as well as completely uniform in thickness.
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch (less than 1/8 teaspoon) ground cloves
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Press firmly against side and bottom.
  3. In large mixing bowl, mix filling ingredients
  4. Spoon ingredient mixture into crust-lined pie plate.
  5. Top with second crust, wrapping the excess top crust under bottom crust edge, pressing edges together to seal
  6. Firmly squeeze edges all around, then make small slices in the top crust to vent
  7. Bake 45 minutes, covering the outside edge of the crust with 3-inch wide strips of foil after first 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning.
  8. Cool before serving.
  9. Enjoy!

Apple pie is perfect for anytime, but I especially love apple pie in the fall with apples picked fresh from the orchard. For a little added “zip” in your apple pies, try using Granny Smith apples for 1/2 of the 8 apples. This apple pie is so yummy that I always get requests for it when it’s bake sale time!
