Get those fat pants ready because we have officially entered holiday baking season! Did any of you go Black Friday shopping today? I'll be heading out tonight to see if I can find any deals on leggings to stuff myself into the rest of this year because I am ready to get my baking and eating on! I mean, we can always diet come January, right? Right! I love all the baked goodies this time of year, both for gifting and indulging on during holiday movie watching time. Cookies, cakes and candies are pretty standard, but I also like to make a tart or two this time of the year as well. I do love a good sea salt dark chocolate tart, but for Thanksgiving I took a different route and made this Holiday Fruit Tart from Golden Blossom Honey. 

 
I love all the recipes with cranberry during the holidays, so I thought I'd switch up from a normal chocolate dessert that I usually take to the in-laws and went with this fruity concoction. It has all of the seasonal fruit goodness wrapped into one lovely tart.  I was a little concerned that the mixture was going to be too runny and we were going to end up with a mess when it came time for slicing, but once cooled, everything melded together beautifully. The crust was one of the best ones I've tasted to date, so I'll be saving that portion of the recipe to use year round. Even though Thanksgiving has come and gone, this tart will be a hit for any holiday gathering the rest of the year. I'd venture to say that it would even be a yummy addition for next Easter as well. While I don't want to get ahead of myself, the way this year flew by, Easter will be here before we know it! 
 

Ingredients

Crust:
2 cups flour
3/4 cup walnuts, finely chopped

  1. That looks so lovely, juicy and colourful, deary, especially the last photo! And that green mint just accentuated it in such a lovely way. It is also nice that there is no sugar in it, not even in the crust!

    1. The crust was so yummy. It's one I could eat every day for dessert.

  2. I usually just make Christmas cookies. For Christmas Day, we will sometimes make a special cake, like Black Forest. I love desserts, but have to really limit my sugar intake now. I made two pies for Thanksgiving and halved the sugar in the recipes (pumpkin and cherry blueberry) and we couldn’t tell the difference.

    1. Honestly, I can never really taste the difference in pies when I cut the sugar either. I usually never skimp when I'm making something like cookies because of the browning, but other than that, we usually lighten the sugar in the recipes too.

  4. It's awesome when you find a crust that is good. We had a pumpkin pie for dessert yesterday and the filling was good but the crust was NOT and it kind of ruined it. This fruit tart photos up nice and pretty. Perfect to bring to a dinner or event too!

  9. We made the typical desserts of pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie. We usually make a homemade flan, but decided to try a new recipe instead. We made tiramisu cookies that didn't taste much like tiramisu but was FABULOUS!!

    Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you had a great holiday with the family.

  13. I think when an ad switches it kicks my comment to the curb. I thought it was my old computer, but now I'm on a different one, and it did the same thing.

    I made: Sugar, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Malt, Cherry Chip, and Angel Kisses.
