6 Sticky-Sweet Caramel Desserts to Try This Weekend

Because there’s no rule that says you have to eat pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving…right?

What we’re grateful for this Thanksgiving: (1) spending time with friends and family; (2) an extra-long weekend; and (3) turkey with all the fixin’s—and dessert, of course. Though most of you are likely planning to indulge in a slice or two of pumpkin pie, there’s something about the rich, sweet-but-savoury flavour of caramel and butterscotch we just can’t get enough of this time of year.

We’ve gathered six of our favourite toffee-filled desserts from the WL Recipe Finder for you to try this weekend. What are you waiting for? Put down that pumpkin filling in favour of these delectable Thanksgiving sweets:

1. Petite Thuet Tarte Tatin

Tart apples, smooth caramel and buttery puff pastry come together in perfect harmony in chef Marc Thuet’s upside-down pie.

2. Buttermilk-Maple Spice Cake

Buttermilk-Maple Spice Cake
This dense spice cake from Ken Haedrich’s Maple Syrup Cookbook—loaded with cinnamon, ginger, ground cloves, nutmeg and cayenne pepper—is just begging to be topped with a dollop of whipped cream.

3. Salted Butter Caramel Sauce

Salted Butter Caramel Sauce
Though this sauce from cookbook author and blogger David Lebovitz isn’t a fully-composed dessert, it can (and should!) be drizzled over vanilla ice cream or fruit crumble.

4. Toffee Almond Cookies

Purebread Bakery’s toffee almond cookies are chewy, sweet and betcha-can’t-eat-just-one delicious. (Bonus: They can be made in advance so you have more time to prep the turkey).

5. Butterscotch Brownies

A classic brownie dipped in bourbon-infused butterscotch sauce. What more could a chocolate lover want from a Thanksgiving dessert?

6. Butterscotch Walnut Pie
