Pear-Cranberry Pie with Faux Lattice

What’s faux? This is a truly delightful fall fruit combo. Instead of using strips of dough woven under and over one another, the latticelike design for this pie is formed by cutting squares from a rolled-out pate brisee. And there’s no waste; the cut-out pastry pieces are overlapped around the edge of the pie plate, adding to the spectacular effect.

Chocolate Espresso Tart

Gorgeous rosettes of espresso-flavored chocolate ganache top this tart -- and as if that weren't enough, undeneath them is a creamy layer of mascarpone ... and under that, a chocolate pastry crust.
