Nothing about Thanksgiving is traditionally small. There is the turkey, of course. Not small. Lots of side dishes. Also not small. And by the end of the meal, the pies can sometimes seem like a pretty bit commitment. That's why we think mini desserts are a great alternative. Bite-sized desserts are good for a few reasons: not many people want three full-size slices of pie at the end of Thanksgiving dinner. But don't we all want to try a little of each? Mini sweets not only look charming at the end of the table, but they allow your guests to try a bit of everything without wasting or overindulging. Here are a few of our favorites: • Pecan Tassies - Joy of Baking • Roasted Pumpkin Pot de Creme - Chez Us • Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes - Pinch my Salt • Mini Caramel Apple Cheesecakes - Rachael Ray • Mini Cranberry Phyllo Tarts - Better Homes and Gardens • Mini Chocolate Hazelnut Tart - La Mia Vita Dolce • Pumpkin Pie Truffles - Food 52 • Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Maple Cream Cheese Filling - Brown Eyed Baker • Fall Vanilla Bean Mini Cupcakes - The Naptime Chef • Mini Pumpkin Gingerbread Cupcakes - Whole Foods Related: 10 Delicious Bite-Sized Desserts (Images: Pinch my Salt, La Mia Vita Dolce, and Brown Eyed Baker
