Pumpkin Lattice Tart

Here’s a lovely, tasty alternative to the traditional Thanksgiving pumpkin pie.
Why try? This dessert will please the traditionalists who insist on having pumpkin pie, while appealing to those who’d like to try something just a little bit different.
Foodie Byte: Just like a classic pumpkin pie, a generous dollop of whipped cream really tops off this tart nicely.
Wine Pairing: Tawny Port. Try a 10- or 20-year-old tawny port with the rich notes of hazelnut. That’s what makes the Tawny Port ideal for this dessert tart . . . or for your favorite pumpkin pie! For more about wine pairings, see
