What desserts do you make for Thanksgiving--not pie related?

I'm looking for something to make for dessert for Thanksgiving - my DH and I are not really into pie. Any other suggestions? Thanks for any input!

  • Cheesecake.. I change it up every year.
    Sometimes it's chocolate, sometimes it's Milky Way, Butterfinger, Turtle, Pumpkin.. depends on my mood.
    I also make Spice cake sometimes. I am making one this year.

  • Indian Pudding -- found it on food network . com under semi homemade. It's sooooo yummy but you have to like molasses.

  • Apple Crisp, apple brown betty - any of the old, traditional autumn desserts. You could poach pears if you want something elegant or make caramel apples if you want something fun.
