I'm in charge of dessert this year and I'm at a loss!!

I'm in charge of dessert this year at Thanksgiving. I am going to make a pumpkin pie, but I want to make something else as well. My aunt usually is in charge of dessert and she is an excellent baker. I have big shoes to fill! I'd really like to try some sort of pumpkin cheesecake or something like that. Any one have any good recipes??

  • The Libby's Pumpkin Roll is fantastic, looks impressive, and isn't that hard to make. The key is to make sure you have the exact pan they call for.

  • I was just thinking..........they came out with that pumpkin pie flavored pudding. I saw it at Walmart just the other day. I'm wondering if you couldn't use that in place of the vanilla or chocolate. I may just give that a try myself. Regardless, this is a HIT everytime. Definitely make it in the near future!

  • I have an incredible no-bake pumpkin cheesecake recipe - a former coworker came up with it one day and shared the recipe with 2 of us - I'm willing to share it, pm me if you want it! (I've made it for family gatherings, etc, before, and it's always a hit - I have a few people that ask for it every year, even just for their own whole one for themselves for later!).
