My friend, Sarah, is hosting a Friendsgiving party this afternoon. We're all going to her house around 3pm with a course from a traditional thanksgiving dinner. Jill will bring cocktails, Cindy will bring cranberries and stuffing, etc... Isn't that a cute idea?
I was assigned with dessert and helping the hostess make the turkey.
For the occasion, Sarah and I made this pumpkin cheesecake tart with cranberry gelee. Isn't she a looker?
I clipped the recipe from Food and Wine magazine back in 2003. I made it once that year, and have not forgotten about it. Underneath that thin layer of cranberry gelee is pumpkin cheesecake resting within an almond tart shell. What's not to love?
Apparently the recipe has been pretty popular because you can still find it at FoodandWine.com
Have you ever hosted/been to a Friendsgiving giving celebration? What are you making for Thanksgiving this year?
