This list of Thanksgiving dessert recipes for vegetarians and vegans is divided into three categories: pies, cheesecakes and miscellaneous, but that's really only one way to look at it. There's pumpkin desserts, cranberry desserts, apple and other fall-themed desserts, chocolate desserts and some that cross over a few of those categories.

While a simple pumpkin pie, pecan pie, or apple pie may be one of the most traditional Thanksgiving desserts, and both can easily be made vegan, take a look at some of these other ideas and get inspired to whip up something memorable and special!
