Complimentary desserts to the standard pumpkin, apple, and pecan pie.
When there are a lot of desserts on a table, guests often like to enjoy a sample of many. A slice of pie or cake tend to be large servings. Small pick-up desserts are a nice compliment. I like to stick to flavors of the season. The middle plate holds nut crescent cookie, which are filled with a combination nut filling. Nuts are always in season this time of year. The bottom plate holds Dulce de Leche fudge. While caramel apples are about a month past their prime – caramel is usually a welcome flavor. Finally, the top plate holds oreo truffles – no matter what the season is, chocolate lovers want chocolate desserts.
Grind together 1 package of Oreos and 1 8-oz pkg of cream cheese in food processor. Roll into balls. Place in freezer for about 30 minutes. Dip in chocolate.
