Last-Minute Thanksgiving Desserts: Mini Cranberry Tarts

November 24, 2015 Rachel Johnson

Thanksgiving can be incredibly stressful. The turkey is too big (or too small). Is it done yet? Is it dressed or stuffed? Cornbread! No, traditional herb seasoned. Gotta make the gravy! Oh, wait! Brussels with or without bacon? What about the potatoes!? Lumpy or smooth…

It’s just all so, and too, much. So when it comes to dessert, leave it to the last minute! This idea (and four more listed below) will take less than 30 minutes to put together, and everyone gets a slice of happy, stress-free sweetness.
