I admit I did not read back through all of these posts, but I am planning on making the Cranberry Pecan, Lemon Curd, and the Pumpkin/Pecan Bundt Cake for next Sunday, a brunch. What can I make and freeze ahead of time? Can I make the cup part of the tassies and freeze them? Can I freeze the Bundt cake as well? After I have filled them, I want to just take half of everything to the brunch as I have another function on that next Tuesday. Will I be able to freeze the filled tassies and thaw on Monday?

I am going to use the pasty part of the Cranberry Pecan Tassies and use that for the Lemon Curd recipe as well, so if that can be frozen, it would be a big help. Fun but busy time of year!!!

Tilly - I'm sure Barbo's crust will freeze with no problems. I froze my lemon tassies, crust and filling, and they were just fine.

I made these and they were a big hit at the Cookie Exchange..

I tweaked them a tiny bit as I like orange and cranberry, so I added some zest of orange to the nut/cranberry mixture..Yumm..Just take an orange and using a fine scraper or zester, and you have orange zest..Don't get any "white" in it as that part is bitter.

In the oven now! Added a bit of orange zest, like you suggested. Smells wonderful!

My Pecan/Pumpkin Cake

It's a winner to freeze. I frosted it with cream cheese after
I thawed. My pecan glazed top, I froze as is.

Tilly, my recipe from Tooter calls for softened butter and cream cheese, blended together well. I do not think you should melt it.

Re-purposing adventure

I made your Cranberry Pecan Mini-Tarts a couple of weeks ago for my LC daughter and me. I had some problems extricating the tarts and managed to crumble about a third of the batch. The tarts were fab and I tossed the crumbled ones into a freezer bag.

Christmas Eve Eve, I took them out, added a handful of pecans and whirled them in the processor with a couple of tbsp of melted butter. I pressed the result into the bottom of a springform pan and put it in the oven for about 10 minutes.
Later, I poured in my LC New York Style Cheesecake.

The crust was a hit, Barbo
