In an online-only slideshow feature on rich, unconventional Thanksgiving desserts, Oprah tapped author Deirdre Heekin [1] (Libation: A Bitter Alchemy [2], In Late Winter We Ate Pears: A Year of Hunger and Love [3]) for her expertise on the appropriate drink to accompany this tasty treat.

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