The Thanksgiving countdown continues! The best way to ease turkey-day kitchen stress is to get as much done before the actual day as possible, and these six desserts – as well as being beautiful and delicious – can all be made a few days ahead and held in the fridge (if you can keep your hands off for that long).

Up first: A whole stick of butter, a whole jar of Nutella, and a tot of rum for good measure ... nobody ever called Nigella Lawson Spartan, and this Nutella cake with chocolate-hazelnut ganache is a good example of why. If you have a tight-fitting cake keeper, make this surprisingly simple recipe a day or two before the big day.

(the full list, if you want to skip ahead):

  1. Nutella cake
  2. Pumpkin-pecan gingersnap ice cream
  3. Pomegranate gelee
  4. Pumpkin chiffon pie
  5. Grapefruit-Campari custard pie
  6. Salted caramel tart
