You'll find no excuses here, just playing a little catch up. Even if I didn't comment, I read everyone's posts about this cranberry shortbread cake thing and knew I wanted to make it for thanksgiving. I've had a huge bag of cranberries in my freezer that I've slowly been working my way through and this recipe finally used the last of them. Huzzah!
I used clementines instead of orange in the filling and made that a day ahead. The crust is both perplexing and delicious in this dish. It is like a giant shortbread cookie housing a nicely tart filling. I thought the combination was fantastic. Others (non cranberry lovers) seemed less impressed with the filling but all for the crust. Here's the recipe. Thanks for a great pick Jessica!
I also baked up Dorie's chocolate pecan pie which I made last year as well. All desserts have finally left the house and I'm kind of dreading christmas cookies and another influx of baked goods at the moment. I will, however, be catching up on the FFwD roast chicken later in the week.
