Thanksgiving is typically all about thinking big: 20-plus-pound turkeys, a giant tub of mashed potatoes and all the crowd-pleasing casseroles. But when it comes to sweets, we want to make an argument for sizing down this year. Tiny desserts mean no fighting with your sister over the last slice of anything. They mean getting to have pecan and apple and pumpkin pie. Plus, they’re always a hit at the kids’ table. Oh, and they’re undeniably adorable.
