Maybe you dunno it, but when you go to your Thanksgiving potluck, you going be judged. If you make something, but taste junk, da judges won't penalize you cuz at least you put forth da effort. If you buy something special but turns out it's junk, den das little bit bad, but all will eventually be forgiven. Da absolute worsest thing you can do is be lazy. If you just pick up some kinda cheap, chalky pumpkin pie from da supermarket das five minutes away, den sorry for say, but you run da risk of not being invited back next year.

For help make sure you stay (or maybe get back) in da good graces of da judge-ers, we at Team Frolic came up with these non-traditional Thanksgiving dessert selections das little bit more thrilling than regular ol' pumpkin pie. And you no need for panic just cuz you waited til last minute. All da delicious desserts you see here should still be available today.
