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.

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
