Thanksgiving can be incredibly stressful. The turkey is too big (or too small). Is it done yet? Is it dressed or stuffed? Cornbread! No, traditional herb seasoned. Gotta make the gravy! Oh, wait! Brussels with or without bacon? What about the potatoes!? Lumpy or smooth...

It's just all so, and too, much. So when it comes to dessert, leave it to the last minute! This idea (and four more listed below) will take less than 30 minutes to put together, and everyone gets a slice of happy, stress-free sweetness.

Frozen Pumpkin Tartlets1 cup pumpkin puree2 ounces 1/3 less fat cream cheese, at room temperature2 tablespoons honey1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice15 frozen mini phyllo cups1/2 cup heavy whipping cream2 tablespoons roasted pumpkin seeds, for garnish

1. Mix together pumpkin, cream cheese, honey, and spice until thoroughly combined. Divide mixture evenly amongst phyllo cups. Place into freezer for 15 minutes.

2. In a cold metal bowl, whip cream to a soft peak. Top each frosty tartlet with a small dollop of cream and roasted pumpkin seeds.
