Oprah’s Thanksgiving Desserts, Featuring Deirdre Heekin

Homemade quince tartlets with champagne—mmm, decadent.

In an online-only slideshow feature on rich, unconventional Thanksgiving desserts, Oprah tapped author Deirdre Heekin (Libation: A Bitter Alchemy, In Late Winter We Ate Pears: A Year of Hunger and Love) for her expertise on the appropriate drink to accompany this tasty treat.

Quince Paste and Crème Fraîche Tartlets

Win the hearts of your Thanksgiving guests with these dainty, sophisticated, not-too-sweet tartlets topped with dollops of crème fraîche.

Deirdre Heekin, author of Libation: A Bitter Alchemy suggests a Kir Royale—in a champagne flute, mix Moscato d’Asti, a low alcohol, sweet wine, with a dash of crème de cassis.
Try: Trenel crème de cassis ($28) with Michele Chiarlo Moscato d’Asti ($14), both at Snooth.com
