Every once in awhile, I make someone's recipe that really deserves more than 5 stars, and this is one of those! What a treat! I made one change (because I forgot to check my pantry first). What I thought was a bag of dried cranberries was actually dried tart cherries, so I used them instead and it worked great. This will become a regular fall menu item around here! Thanks, Rita, for posting a dessert that I can eat without guilt!
