Brown Sugar Tart
I recently hosted a friendsgiving and served both of these desserts to my guests. It is nice not to have to think up a dessert.
First up Brown Sugar Tart. I voted for this one since we made the Caramel Tart last year and it was well received. I was most scared for this dessert since the reviews were not great by those that had made it. Since one of the complaints was with sweetness I decided to add 1/4 teaspoon of coffee crystals instead of just a pinch. I also decided to chill my tart to have pieces that were not custard-like and this also helped. Since I was serving three desserts I cut my tart into small pieces, 16. I only had one piece but many guests went back for seconds. The tart got rave reviews.
The desert roses were pretty straight forward. Chocolate covered cereal with dried fruit, coconut and nuts. I made half with almonds and half without for those with nut allergies. Chocolate, what’s not to like? The small serving size was also ideal for a party.
I have enjoyed all our November baking this month and look forward to more in December. To see what others thought head over to Tuesdays with Dorie.

I'm glad these were both a hit at your dinner party. The extra coffee in the tart was a good idea to make it less sweet.
I am glad that both of these were a hit at your place. Your desert roses are in the sweetest muffin papers ever.
