Alls that needs to be said for this post is YUM-O!
Cranberry Walnut Pumpkin Tart -- an new favorite!
What's not to love?
This dessert has all the creamy goodness of good ol' pumpkin pie that we all know and love so much.
But now it has a slightly fruity-tangy side to it with some added orange zest and fresh cranberries, plus a nutty crunch with the cranberry walnut topping. I thought my kids would be horrified at what I had done to one of their favorite desserts, but they were not in the least--the loved it!
Remember my mother's Pumpkin Party 2014?
Well, she had not just a few pumpkins. So many pumpkins that we sent guests home with pumpkins, my kids sold pumpkins, and now we still have a decent amount of sugar pumpkins for our cooking pleasure. We've made a lot of pumpkin muffins and breads, but I decided it was time for a pie.
I knew I wanted to try something different, so I went to my little binder full of magazine clips and printed recipes I had not yet tried but knew I wanted to. In the back of my mind I knew this cranberry version existed in there somewhere, and there it was!
This recipe came from one of my favorite food blogs Good Life Eats. This is also where I got my pear butter recipe from, btw. As of late she doesn't post so many recipes....shame.
It's a great recipe though and I highly recommend you heading on over and getting it.
