Countdown to Thanksgiving: Dessert Recipes from the GMT Weekend team

News

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE)-After the turkey and fixings, the heartiest Thanksgiving meals aren’t complete until the final piece of the menu hits the table: dessert.

While there might be debate about the main Thanksgiving meal like stuffing versus dressing; cranberry sauce as a side; or even, whether or not to serve salad, there’s fewer questions about dessert.

The Good Morning Tennessee Weekend team has their own traditions for the holidays, including family recipes that are must-haves on the table.
