Pumpkin Dessert for Thanksgiving -- what's new and different?

rainey | Nov 4, 201111:06 PM

I'm beginning my menu plan for Thanksgiving. For dessert we'll have apple pie and ice cream. Then I'm planning to bake this layer cake http://cookingbythebook.com/blog/reci...

I need a pumpkin dessert and I don't like pumpkin pie very much. In the past I've done ice cream, cheesecake, a layered pie filling with chocolate and a sour cream layers in addition to pumpkin. I've done pumpkin bread pudding and pumpkin creme brulees.

What haven't I explored yet? A filled and rolled cake? Brownies? Some decadent mousse creation? What interesting thing is there to combine pumpkin with? I'd love your favorite tried-and-true pumpkin desserts. Bonus points for things or parts that can be done in advance.

Thanks for your help!
