HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!
I hope you all had wonderful celebrations, whether they were big or small. We just got home from our big family dinner, and it was very nice. Our family basically does a potluck, and every year I am in charge of bringing the dessert. This is because I am the family member with the most interest in baking, and also because this is my way of guaranteeing that I will be able to eat dessert! When I first became vegan 6 years ago or so, a few people were a bit resistant to my vegan pumpkin pies... but over the years all that has faded entirely, and the desserts are gobbled up happily.
I made one pumpkin pie, from a recipe I adapted and veganized, and two of the Pear Cranberry Tarts. I promise not to make any more Pear Cranberry Tarts any time soon... but these were SO SO SO good! I made sure my pears were ripe, and the tarts were amazing. It's fun arranging the pear slices in fancy, artful fans.
I'm sorry to say that I got so busy eating that I didn't take a picture of my plate (bad vegan blogger!), but it was delicious, nutritious, and 100% vegan! Hoorah!
