Let's get a little hungry here, shall we? Every year the turkey is epic and each side dish -- from the marshmallow-crusted sweet potato casserole to the heaps of fluffy stuffing -- could stand alone as the best bite of the year.

With deliciously fitting holiday flavors like apple, pumpkin, and maple, these desserts make a sweet finale to the feast. Chances are, no one will miss the pie.
