Lots of holidays are coming up and that means parties... which obviously means desserts. And Martha Stewart Living has about a bazillion pie & tart choices with photo tutorials for making pie crusts and a thousand things more.
The picture at the top of this post is actually my own Dark Chocolate Candied Orange Tart which is dead easy. The prep is actually done in short steps over 3 days. Sounds complicated, but really this kind of tart/pie is the least stressful when you have tons of cooking and baking to do.
What's your dessert options when you're entertaining?
