What is the best dessert to make out of my 10 honeycrisp apples?

Thanksgiving is in two days and I'm supposed to bring a dessert to our 11 person holiday feast. We just received 10 organic honeycrisp apples from Harry and David. What should I do with them?
My first thought was to make them into one or two pies (possibly adding a few other apples) but I'm not sure honeycrisps are good pie apples. Some people
them in pie, but others
suggest they are too crisp
or maybe too sweet
But I have these honeycrisps and a charge to bring dessert to Thanksgiving, so how best can I use them? I'm not a tremendously good cook but I have made a pie before with good results. Is a pie the best use of these apples, the thing that my relatives would probably enjoy the most, especially if we put a bunch of ice cream on it? Or do honeycrisps do better in something like an apple cobbler? I don't think my family would go for just plain old baked apples, etc.
Also, if you have any killer recipes you would suggest for these apples, I will appreciate them very much!
Thanks, and happy holiday!
