Anyone else doing a non-traditional dessert?

Just wondering if my family is one of the few! We HATE pumpkin things. I just finished up individual cheesecakes- some chocolate, some the standard. There is a chocolate cake in the oven too and I'm going to do a ganache for frosting.

Any others out there?

Having a pumpkin pie... but I've also requested my mom's chocolate cream pie and this really good simple jello pie she makes that is just whipped cream mixed with strawberry jello before the jello hardens and so it's like a creamy stawberry thing in a oreo cookie crust... yum.

We have pumpkin, meringue, and marionberry pies for Thanksgiving. My mom loves to bake so we have cranberry-cheese bars, fruit tarts, and homemade strawberry cheesecake. I spied some peppermint and pumpkin flavored ice cream in the freezer last night. :biggrin:

Pumpkin pie is my all time favorite dessert. But, in my family, we also serve chocolate cake, mince meat pie (disgusting!), cheesecake and apple pie. Oh, and sometimes German Chocolate cake too.
