Homemade quince tartlets with champagne—mmm, decadent.

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.

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 [4]
