Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

If you are like me, you are hunting down recipes, making grocery lists, trying to decide how big of a turkey you will need. I love this holiday. Just getting together with family and friends is so much fun. I love the smell of that turkey roasting and hearing the sounds of people talking and laughing together.

I hope on that day, whether you are at home or in a restaurant, you take a moment to just take it all in and just be thankful for everything we have in this wonderful country of ours. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everybody.

  5. Gradually add cream, mixing until a ball forms.
  6. Refrigerate, covered for 30 minutes until it is easy to handle.
  7. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into a 13 inch circle. Press onto bottom and up sides of an ungreased 11 inch fluted tart pan with removable bottom.
  8. Combine all filling ingredients, pour into crust.
  9. For the topping, whisk flour, sugar, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in toasted walnuts. Sprinkle mixture over filling.
  10. Bake until knife inserted in middle comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with GHOSTWOOD whipped cream. Refrigerate leftovers.

Enjoy!
