Thanksgiving Dessert Ideas

Local businesses are ready to help out with desserts for your Thanksgiving table.

Two local businesses are ready and willing to help out with tasty dessert selections to complement your Thanksgiving feast. No matter what the family sweet tooth craves, these folks have something to satisfy.

The talented ladies at Sweet Tempered (4301 W. Wm. Cannon, Bldg. B-120, 892-9100; four delicious holiday pie options from which to choose: Harvest Pumpkin ($9.99); Pecan ($14.99);Apple Pie ($15.99); and Chocolate Cream ($13.99). All pies are 9 inches and will yield 8-10 servings. Pies must be picked up at the bakery by 6pm on Wednesday, November 26th.

While pie may be traditional at Thanksgiving, the folks at Teo (1206 West 38th, 451-9555; suggest you try one of their gelato cakes this holiday season. Each rectangular terrine has three flavors of one layer year and should be sliced to reveal a stripe of each delectable flavor selection. Choose from I Noci (the nut) with peanut butter, hazelnut, and pistachio gelato; Il Zucca (the pumpkin) with pumpkin, Bourbon vanilla, and cinnamon; and Il Sol (the salt) with salted caramel, bacio, and Bourbon vanilla. Each gelato cake serves 10 and costs only $19.95. And if the family prefers a scoop of gelato on top of any flavor of holiday pie, why not consider a pint or quart of one of the following - pumpkin or gingersnap gelato for pumpkin pie, Bourbon vanilla or salted caramel gelato for pecan pie, cinnamon or salted caramel gelato for apple pie, cranberry sorbet as a palate cleanser? The possibilites are endless. Gelato cakes, pints, or quarts can be picked up until 10pm on Wednesday, November 26th.
