Thanksgiving 2015 Desserts

IMG_7523Complimentary 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.

Oreo Truffles

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.
