White Chocolate-Cranberry-Pecan Tart
The first time I tasted my friend's dessert was at a Christmas party that she was having. I got a copy of the recipe and now it's a yuletide tradition for my family. The white chips, cranberries and orange peel take pecan pie to a scrumptious new level. —Karen Moore, Jacksonville, Florida
