Are you one of those people who’s more worried about Thanksgiving dessert than Thanksgiving dinner? The turkey is one thing, but for many, it’s those desserts that make for Thanksgiving magic. Indeed, there’s something truly wonderful about sitting around with the family after Thanksgiving, casually munching on desserts, and letting the meal wash over you. As you might imagine, we have plenty of great recipes for making dessert on your pellet grill with our best grilling pellets.
Pumpkin Spice Cake
‘Tis the season not for gifts yet but for pumpkin spice. Your pellet grill can get in on the act too with our pumpkin spice cake recipe. As with all pumpkin spice items, the key ingredients are all there: sugar, butter, pumpkin, flour, cinnamon, and plenty of frosting. Some highlights: preheat your grill to 350 and, once you’ve combined the butter, sugar, vanilla, canned pumpkin, and beaten eggs, pour this batter into your greased pan. You’re going to cook it on your pellet grill for about half an hour. It really does take that short a period of time to get it done.
Crisp After Dinner: Apricot Crisp
Of course, by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, many folks have had quite enough pumpkin and pumpkin spice for the fall. One thing that never goes out of style: is apricot crisp. Our recipe is best handled with a baking dish or cast iron skillet. Remember: even though it’s an “apricot crisp,” it tastes best with zest from a lemon, blueberries, and raspberries. When you’ve mixed and mashed everything, bake it at 350 degrees for an hour. You’ll know it’s ready when the fruit mixture bubbles and the top looks brown and crisp. For best results: serve with vanilla ice cream.
After Thanksgiving dinner, it’s entirely possible that everyone involved will be into having dessert yet feel too tired/sated to do much more than pick at something. Riding to the rescue: our Smoked Lemon Blueberry Loaf recipe. Of all our recipes, this might be one of the easiest to put together. Once you’ve put everything together, cook it in your smoker at 350 degrees for about an hour, give or take. How do you determine the “give or take?” By checking to see when a toothpick comes out clean. Then, let it rest for a half hour. After it’s cool, drizzle the glaze on the bread and you’re ready for dessert!
