I hosted my first Friendsgiving of the season, a term I am just now becoming acquainted with, this past weekend. Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday. It is the holiday I host for my family and I love all the food. Every year I host what I called a Pre-Thanksgiving for friends that I won’t get to celebrate with on the big day.
Now that I am baking with Tuesdays with Dorie every week I knew I had plenty of desserts to choose from for this meal. I chose Caramel Tart from Baking Chez Moi. This dessert takes a bit of planning ahead as it needs to chill for two hours prior to service.
I have not been successful in making caramel in the past so I was a little hesitant with this one but I followed Dorie’s directions to a T and it worked well. Butter is added to the caramel then heavy whipping cream. The tart is baked, cooled to room temperature then refrigerated for two hours. My guests thought it was pumpkin pie until they tasted it. I thought it was deliciously creamy. It was a hit with the crowd.
