Recipe Swap Roundup - Thanksgiving Desserts

With Thanksgiving falling right in the middle of the two weeks participants have to make their recipe for the swap I thought a theme of Thanksgiving Desserts would be perfect. Pumpkin pie might be the traditional sweet treat, but judging from these recipes below it certainly isn't the end-all, be-all of Thanksgiving desserts. Check out the recipes below and see if one catches your eye for next year's feast.

Melissa was worried her recipe for Pumpkin Roulade with Buttercream would be difficult to make, but it was actually easy and delicious:

Patrizia, a newcomer to the swaps, really enjoyed her recipe for Pumpkin Whoopie Pies, despite her initial hesitancy about the "fall" flavors:

Chrissy loves anything with white chocolate in it, so her Cranberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies were a big hit:

Ashley really stepped out of her comfort zone with Triple Chocolate Cheesecake, which was a big hit with her husband and family:

Nicole's Caramel Appledoodles were so good they solicited a marriage proposal:

My stepdad went back for seconds of these Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes, which is a testament to how good they were:

Jaida was happy to break away from the pumpkin craze she's been on with Nantucket Cranberry Pie:

Ellie's Pumpkin Chocolate-Chip Squares were perfectly moist and utterly delicious:

Jenna modified my recipe for Butterscotch Pumpkin Cupcakes and they were a big hit:

Lishie had a lighter holiday dessert, Meringue Nests, that were melt-in-your-mouth delicious:

The Cookaholic Wife doesn't have good luck with layer cakes, but that didn't stop her from enjoying her Vermont Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, with two layers instead of four:

Coleen wasn't able to make her recipe for No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake for Thanksgiving as planned because her son decided to arrive two weeks early (congrats!!):

Nicole loves baking bar treats so she loved her recipe for Pumpkin S'mores Bars:

Christine's Cranberry White Chocolate Almond Cookies were devoured by her hungry relatives:

Jey's Chocolate Hazelnut Tart was a huge hit at Thanksgiving dinner:
