Haven’t decided what to make for your Christmas dessert yet? This Apple and Cranberry Tart is the perfect option.
It’s festive, it’s full of fruity flavours and has that pastry addition we all NEED in the holidays right?
I think the age of traditional desserts is long passed and there is much more freedom when it comes to ‘new traditions’. For our family we never actually had dessert as we would stuff our faces with starters and mains and then just about explode before bed. If we managed to keep it together we always had a bag of Chuckles or some Quality Streets on hand just in case.
Now that I’m older I consciously make space for pudding and we have some Malva pudding with double thick cream [Oh yes] or a trifle or…wait for it – Cheese cake, ice cream, Chuckles, Salted caramel and some mascarpone. I know what you are thinking – UTTER MADNESS. But this was a dish a family friend of ours brought over and wow’ed us beyond words we now cant live without it.
What are your family traditions when it comes to the holidays?
I loved going through these ‘Last Minute Recipes’ as there is always that one family who forget to plan ahead and then get a surprise when the shops are out of just about everything!
Not a big fan of big desserts, try this recipe from last year [our most commented on recipe] Vegan pecan and dark chocolate toffee or try this Vegan Chees cake
