This delicious tart is just in time to serve up for Thanksgiving for our American friends, who will be celebrating turkey day next week. I like pumpkin pie but I think I like this tart a little more.

It uses about half the filling of a pumpkin pie and combines it with a graham crust instead of a pastry crust which I also love. The crowning glory of this simple easy tart is some simple Bailey’s Irish Cream infused whipped cream to make it extra indulgent.

A Graham cracker crust compliments this recipe beautifully.

A perfect ending to Thanksgiving dinner or any Fall meal. Made with home canned or store bought pumpkin puree, this can be a delicious Sunday dinner dessert at any time of the year.
