Even if pie duties are already taken, you can still stand out this Thanksgiving by baking creative treats that will more than earn their spot on the dessert table. Wow the after-dinner crowd with homemade caramel stuffed pumpkin cookies that could very well upstage the pumpkin pie. A chocolate tart made with Benton’s Pecan Shortbread Cookies—and other affordable holiday essentials from ALDI—is easy to throw together, but tastes like it came from a bakery. More dessert? Yes, please!
