This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is very timely, considering it’s American Thanksgiving in a couple of days. Not your typical pumpkin pie, the Cranberry Crackle Tart is a dessert that works well at the end of a heavier meal, because it’s fairly light – not on taste and certainly, it’s an indulgence but it’s a much lighter dessert which, quite frankly we could all use around the holidays!
It starts out with a wonderful sweet tart dough (my “go to”) topped with some jam…
I enjoyed this one but next time need to make sure my meringue is fluffier. I feel my tart was flatter than it should have been – not that it affected the flavour but I would have preferred a puffier look! I brought this to a Christmas-y meal at our neighbours’ house featuring a baked ham and more side dishes than we could count, and it was the perfect sweet end to an indulgent meal.
