Caramel Cream Macarons from Essence Bakery Café

Essence Bakery is known for its macarons, and the most popular flavor is the caramel cream. They're tiny size means that anyone who filled up at dinner can get a taste of dessert without wasting a bunch of pie, and the classic caramel flavor will be a hit with the whole crowd. If you want to opt for a more traditional Thanksgiving flavor, Essence also has a pumpkin macaron, spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger. Small macarons are $16.80 for a dozen or $33.60 for two dozen. Large macarons are $3.25 each.

Tammie Coe's Traditional Pumpkin Pie

What would a Thanksgiving dessert list be without pumpkin pie? A shame, that's what. If you want a simple and simply amazing traditional pumpkin pie for your table, Tammie Coe will bake the perfect one just for you ($24). Her version, which is topped with caramel whipped cream, certainly pleased the crowd at the Third Annual Pie Social. For Thanksgiving, Tammie Coe is also making a special sweet potato and butterscotch mousse cake ($36 small, $60 large). Order by Saturday, November 17, for pick-up on Wednesday, November 21.

Pumpkin Cheesecake from Bertha's Café

This dessert, a welcome mix between cheesecake and pumpkin pie, is fluffy and light with just enough pumpkin flavor and spice. If you want a dessert that's seasonal but not too rich, this is a nice alternative to pumpkin pie. The cheesecake rests in a graham cracker crust that tastes remarkably like Bicoff biscuits and is topped with an ultra-thick layer of airy whipped cream, so it's appropriately indulgent to cap off a fantastic holiday meal. Pumpkin pecan cheesecake is also available. Small cheesecakes (serves 4 to 6) are $25, medium (serves 6 to 8) $35, and large (serves 10 to 15) $45. With a minimum of 48 hours' notice, call 602-955-1022 to order.

I haven't tried it yet, but I'm excited to order from www.classiccakesandconfections.com; I met Lisa at the Scottsdale Farmer's Market this past weekend and those pies look delish! :)
