    Great list – I usually make a cookie similar to the cinnamon pecan twists but it had orange zest too.

    I just made a Peanut Butter-Pumpkin Muffin (on my blog today) that was meant to be a healthy snack, but I think is good enough for T-day dessert! I also really like to make a simple saute of pineapple, cinnamon, and a touch or rum and/or butter. Tastes decadent but it guilt-free!
