No matter how stuffed your guests are after the main meal, everyone will make room for these stunning sweets.

1. No-Bake Chocolate Cream Pie with Toasted Meringue
(above)
The swirly meringue topping on this pie is stable enough to make a day ahead and keep chilled--even if you've brûléed it.

2. Apple-Almond Turnover

Some almond paste is sold in a tube; other brands will be in a can in the baking aisle. If you don't have a scale, measure ⅓ cup, packed.

A press-in crust, short bake time, and do-ahead option liberate you (and your oven) on Thanksgiving Day.
