For Thanksgiving dessert, make cranberry brie tartlets. (cc: You must take advantage of this time of year to make these: Thank you! -daniel.redler)

Ingredients

26 ozs. Stilton cheese, finely diced

16 ozs. Sautéed and diced shallots, cut in half

1 cup cranberries

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon honey

1 cup buttermilk, at room temperature

Directions

1. In a large skillet, combine shallots and cranberries and cook over medium heat until the shallots are softened and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add potatoes and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.

2. Combine Stilton, shallots, and potatoes in a bowl and set aside.

3. In a small bowl, combine cream, sugar, flour, baking powder, and vanilla and mix with a whisk until the batter is smooth.

4. In a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, combine buttermilk and honey.

5. Using a spoon, stir the dry ingredients into the custard mixture until just combined. Stir in the butter until smooth.

6. Divide the mixture evenly among 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

7. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 20 minutes, or until topping is golden brown. Remove from oven. Cool slightly.

8. Spread frosting evenly over the tartlets. Allow them to cool completely on a rack.

9. Serve chilled or, for best results, keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. They’ll last up to 6 days in the refrigerator.
