We all have our traditional dessert favorites, but many of us enjoy a little creativity at this time of year. I like to add at least one unique and special dessert to the holiday menu. Below are some of my favorite holiday desserts along with some new and different desserts.

Butternut Squash Pie

This is a wonderful dessert for a special meal. The butternut squash pie is flavored with brown sugar and cinnamon, and it's sure to please. Add it to your holiday menu this year.

Pumpkin Maple Flan

Spices and maple syrup help to flavor this rich and delicious flan, and the pumpkin makes it a perfect choice for holiday dinner or special guests. 

Moist Fig Cake

This fabulous cake is made in a Bundt cake pan or tube pan. The cake is made with fig preserves and pecans, along with buttermilk, brown sugar, and a variety of spices. Top the cake with a caramel glaze or sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Five Minute Cocoa Cake

This extraordinarily moist chocolate cake is a snap to prepare and bake. Bake this cake in layers or as a sheet cake, and decorate with your favorite frosting.

Baked Apple Pudding

This egg-free cake-like dessert will be a big hit with your family and guests. A little cinnamon adds to the buttery caramel flavor in this irresistible apple dessert.

Butterscotch Pudding

This heavenly butterscotch pudding is incredibly good, and it makes a great little dessert for a smaller dinner. Even if you have a few pies and a cake or two, you might think about adding this pudding to your list.

Cherry Pretzel Dessert

The pretzel crust in this easy dessert gives it a pleasant saltiness. Whipped topping and cherry pie filling make this dessert super easy to make, and it's a crowd-pleaser.

Sweet Potato Cheesecake Pie

Use a purchased or homemade graham cracker pie crust for this delicious holiday cheesecake. There's no need for a springform pan for this easy cheesecake dessert.

Peanut Butter Silk Pie

This peanut butter pie has a delicious twist, the layer of fudge on the bottom. Use the included recipe or use your own favorite fudge recipe in this pie.

Buttermilk Pie

A little nutmeg adds flavor to this delicious buttermilk pie. Though similar in flavor, the slight tang and richness from the buttermilk gives it an edge over the typical custard pie.
