A sweet white chocolate drizzle perfectly balances the tangy cranberries in my signature holiday dessert. I also make this tart for local coffee houses and restaurants. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2/3 cup white baking chips
  • FILLING:
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • TOPPING:
  • 2/3 cup white baking chips
  • 2 teaspoons shortening
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Place almonds and sugar in a food processor; pulse until almonds are ground. Add flour and salt; pulse until blended. Transfer mixture to a small bowl; stir in melted butter and cream. Press onto bottom and up sides of an ungreased 9-in. fluted tart pan with removable bottom.
  2. Bake 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven; sprinkle baking chips evenly over bottom. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. In a saucepan, combine filling ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer, uncovered, 10-15 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Pour over baking chips.
  4. Bake 20-25 minutes or until filling is bubbly and crust is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate 2 hours or until cold.
  5. In a microwave, melt baking chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle over tart. Sprinkle with almonds. Yield: 12 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
