Pumpkin Madness Day #7 The Final Day of Pumpkin Madness...Pumpkin Sour Cream Tart! (TWD)



So here we are, Day #7. We've come to the end of the road my friends. I'm kind of sad to see my week of Pumpkin Madness come to an end - 7 Pumpkin recipes, 7 days in a row, and it all went by so fast. Luckily, I have this phenomenal Pumpkin Sour Cream tart to dig into to make me feel a whole lot happier. And luckily for you, it's not too late to enter to win my special Thanksgiving giveaway! Just click here and you could win a Le Creuset pie dish, Pecan Pumpkin Butter and more!!


I wanted to end my Pumpkin week with something a little more traditional, because isn't that what Thanksgiving is all about? No fancy shmancy gourmet ingredients...when it comes to Thanksgiving, most people just want some good ole turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes and Pumpkin pie. Well, Dorie Greenspan's Pumpkin Sour Cream Tart is just an ever so slight twist on a traditional pumpkin pie, with those same comforts and flavors that we all know and love.

Plus, with Dorie Greenspan and the Tuesdays With Dorie group so near and dear to my heart, I thought there would be no better way to end my Pumpkin Madness week than with this gorgeous tart!

This tart starts out with Dorie's Sweet Tart Crust, which many of you know is my absolute favorite. It is crispy and sweet and I would be a happy camper just to eat the crust on its own! The filling is smooth and creamy, with a mixture of heavy cream, sour cream, lots of fall spices and of course...PUMPKIN!

I want to give a huge, enormous thanks to all of you who stopped by all week long to check out my Pumpkin Recipe Roundup. And especially to those of you who tried out some of the recipes to experience the Madness for yourself!!! But like all good things....all Pumpkin Madness must come to an end...

Oh, and don't forget to stop by tomorrow, where the winner of my special Pumpkin and Le Creuset giveaway will be announced. click here to enter!
