From sweetbreads to pumpkin pie, cake, and kiffles, there’s always something sweet or something baked you can add to the table for a memorable family reunion!
There’s nothing better than freshly baked bread — and Thanksgiving is the perfect time to make some. Whether you choose a fruit-and-nut-studded loaf, fluffy biscuits, buttery cornbread or an easy-to-make, no-yeast option, there’s bound to be something that everyone has space on their plate when the breadbasket is passed around! Cornbread and buttermilk biscuits are a great, traditional American option, but you’re also able to save some bread for dessert with cranberry orange or banana nut breads.
Sweet Thanksgiving Treats
Even if you’re not into overly sweet thanksgiving treats like pumpkin pie, you can opt for other forms of baked goods like riffles and muffins. Cornbread muffins are moist, fluffy, tender, and sweet. They’re the perfect side dish to serve with a Southern barbecue or Thanksgiving holiday dinner. Sweet potatoes want to be more than just a marshmallow-topped casserole, and we don’t blame them. Boiling them in a mixture of water, sugar, vanilla, and spices infuses them with a ton of flavor, making them just as good as their summer dessert counterparts, like peach or blackberry cobbler. Apple and cinnamon hand pies make a great way to split hand-sized portions of usually messy pies. Kiffles are incredibly versatile in flavor, easy to make, and easy to find in the Valley. Feeling fancy? Cheesecake bars with a crème brûlée topping are sure to impress any party guest. When in doubt? A cake from Egypt Star Bakery is a great option! No matter what falls on your Thanksgiving dinner table, you can count on us for everything from muffins to cakes, pies, and scones, and even the day-after teatime scone.
