Tortilla Pudding from Ticoz Resto-Bar

It's unconventional to order a restaurant's dessert to take home, but the tortilla pudding from Ticoz is so incredible that you'll want to do it anyway. (We called to check; they will be happy to oblige.) What makes it a good fit for Thanksgiving? It's full of gooey cinnamony goodness, which is typical of autumn desserts, and tortillas make it a fun option for a Southwestern celebration. As if that's not enough, it's so addictive you'll go back for seconds -- even if you had thirds of turkey and stuffing. Call 602-200-0160 to order.

Pie Snob's Green Chile Jalapeno Apple Pie

Why just get apple pie when you could be eating green chile jalapeno apple pie on Turkey Day? With fresh granny smith apples, hatch green chilies, and jalapeno honey butter cinnamon crumble, this creative twist on the all-American classic won multiple awards at the 2011 Pie Social -- but it's seasonal, and this is the only time of year it can be ordered. If you're going gourmet this holiday season, don't pass up this unique pie ($24).

Tres Leches Cake from La Tolteca

For a Mexican-American Thanksgiving -- or if you or your guests prefer cake over pie for whatever reason -- tres leches cake is a great choice. This buttery, spongy cake soaked in three types of milk (hence the name) is a real crowd-pleaser, especially when you pick one up from La Tolteca. There are two options: vanilla icing and colorful sprinkles, perfect for the kids' table, or chocolate icing with a cherry on top. Either way, the cake comes with its own milky sauce, and each bite is crumbly and moist without being soggy or overly sweet.

Pecan Pie from The Farm at South Mountain

Along with pumpkin, pecan pie is a true Thanksgiving classic. Where do you get a good one? Go straight to the source: the pecan grove. With countless pecan trees, The Farm at South Mountain is just the spot to pick up a made-from-scratch pecan pie for your family's table. Call The Farm Kitchen at 602-276-6360 to order a whole pie ($28). At least 24 hours' notice is required.
