The Eats cookbook is full of recipes that would make for delicious additions to your Thanksgiving meal, especially the dessert portion of the evening.

We took some of the classic comfort food desserts you love and gave them a little twist! Here are a couple sample recipes—perfect for the holidays!

Caramel Apple Crumb Pie

“In bygone days, apple pie this good was grounds for a marriage proposal.” Who doesn’t love the mixture of cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla and of course, apples?! These ingredients are impeccably combined to not only create a dish that looks as good as it tastes, but will create the perfect aroma for an autumn get-together.

Creamy New York-Style Cheesecake

Cheesecake is always a favorite around the holiday season, our New York-Style Cheesecake recipe is absolutely to die for. The texture of this sour cream cheesecake is like velvet on the tongue. We will tell you one of our secrets: when blending cheesecake ingredients, make sure not to overdo it. Beating air into a cheesecake only increases the possibility that it will rise more than it should and then crack as it settles. We recommend going slowly to make sure it turns out well!

Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Kids will love this one! This pudding is like pumpkin pie, but with a firmer, denser texture. Skip making the crust and try this twist on the classic pumpkin pie. All you have to do once it’s done cooking is top it with whipped cream and serve!
