MOUNT VERNON — Thanksgiving has many traditional dishes that are expected to adorn every holiday table: Turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, candied yams, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce and, of course, pumpkin pie. This Thursday, why not add a quick, special seasonal dessert to accompany your family’s classic Turkey Day pumpkin pie?

Cranberry Orange Torte is a unique and delicious dessert that will look lovely on your holiday dinnerware and surprise your tastebuds with different, yet harmonious, flavors in each bite you take. Mixed inside a subtle orange-cinnamon flavored cake batter, the sweetness of dried figs complements the sporadic tartness of whole cranberries. Chopped walnuts and brown sugar add a rich, nutty warmth that will leave your guests with satisfied smiles.
