The best Thanksgiving desserts include the traditional pies, cakes and cookies. Pies are far and away the most popular desserts for the holiday, as families gather around for the annual Thanksgiving feast. If pie isn't your thing, that's okay -- Turkey Day affords plenty of opportunities to sample all sorts of tasty delights! This list includes all sorts of great Thanksgiving desserts, so be sure to vote for those you like the most (and vote down any you just can't stand). Feel free to add any of your personal favorite desserts for Thanksgiving, too.

Okay, now for the run down on the most awesome Thanksgiving desserts: Let's talk pies, shall we? The most traditional among us probably go instantly for Thanksgiving pie staples like pumpkin pie, pecan pie and apple pie. In the South, one can often expect to devour scrumptious sweet potato pie, too. And yes, some people actually *do* like mincemeat pie, so that makes the list.

Pumpkin desserts are also really common at Thanksgiving, and they're becoming more and more popular as the years go by. Ever had pumpkin cheesecake? Amazing! There's also pumpkin bread, pumpkin cake (including spice cake) and pumpkin cupcakes (with cream cheese frosting, even!). Gingerbread, while often associated with Christmas, can also be served for Thanksgiving.

Whether you go for pumpkin pies or Jell-O (really?), enjoy this list and be sure to vote for the best Thanksgiving desserts.
