No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Mini- Trifles

This recipe from Good Housekeeping looks fancy, but it’s actually really simple and a good choice when you’ve dedicated your oven to the turkey.

The recipe takes cream cheese, brown sugar, pureed canned pumpkin and heavy cream to whip up the main part of the filling. A little crunch is added in the form of ginger cookies or graham crackers, and chopped nuts. Alternate the pumpkin cream cheese mix, with the cookie mix. Combine this with candied nut brittle and layer it in parfait cups.

Apple Crisp Cookie Cups

For those not into pumpkin, but still want to enjoy a fall-themed individualized treat, this recipe from Delish is a great option. It combines oatmeal cookie dough and diced Granny Smith apples to make mini “apple crisps” that guests are sure to love. The cookie cups are made with a standard muffin tin. The apple filling is cooked on the stove and spooned inside. Top with caramel sauce, whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Cranberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars

For many, Thanksgiving is not complete without cranberries, and these bars are a great way to provide them. It calls for a homemade orange crust, topped with a filling that combines light cream cheese, light sour cream and jellied cranberry sauce to create a tarty delight.
