The cozy, comforting flavors of autumn come through and through in this easy holiday-special cake that fits anytime.  The heavenly layer of creamy topping makes it a must-bake when looking for desserts for Thanksgiving.

Easy Pumpkin Cheesecake

There's something special about Thanksgiving desserts. We sure seem to crave them, especially when the temperature drops and the leaves start to change color. Well, here's one that doesn't add a lot of work to your busy fall schedule.

Caramel Pear Cake

It's so much easier today to get the tastes of old-fashioned homemade cakes without all the old-fashioned fuss. Start with a spice cake mix, add fresh pears, caramel topping and mmmm... Is that old-fashioned enough?

Chocolate Hazelnut Torte

Take a no-bake shortcut and build a fancy looking and tasting holiday dessert torte from store-bought frozen pound cake frosted with healthy chocolate hazelnut spread. one has to know how easy it was!

Easy Pumpkin Cake

We love pumpkin everything in the fall, but we don't always have time to bake a pumpkin cake from scratch. Thankfully, our recipe for Easy Pumpkin Cake comes together in no time thanks to some shortcuts, like cake mix and canned pumpkin.

Harvest Cake

Bringing in the harvest was never this scrumptious (till now)!! This simple autumn dessert brings together the best flavors of the season all put together for a Harvest Cake you won't soon forget. And the best part? It only takes an hour to make!

Apple-Filled Pound Cake

If you love pound cake, but need something that's a little lightened-up, then you're gong to love our Apple-Filled Pound Cake. Instead of using oil or butter, we use applesauce to give this moist pound cake even more apple flavor. What a treat!

Don't tell anybody, but this sweet cake has a secret ingredient from the veggie garden. That's how our Test Kitchen's best Butternut Squash Roll will "grow" on your whole gang ...especially for your Thanksgiving dessert!
