On an earlier post, the one on Almond Praline, I spoke of a master plan to make ahead components of a showstopper of a dessert, Roasted Pears with Lemon Cream and Maple Caramel Syrup. This gorgeous, tart, sunny lemon curd is just one component but also stands on its own as a fantastic recipe.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I’ve already decided on one of my desserts. And no, it’s not Almond Praline – this Almond Praline is just one component of one of the fanciest, showstoppers of a dessert I’ve made for a while. It make sense to go all out for a Holiday, especially when the dessert can be broken down into do ahead components and assembled last-minute.
For once I don’t have too much to say about a recipe – only that I became utterly enamoured with the idea of this when I was leafing through a Midwest Magazine. I was wowed! Perfect for fall, perfect for Thanksgiving and perfect for me! The recipe makes eight servings, but for these photos, I made a smaller version.
