JEFFREY STEINGARTEN’S MOTHER-IN-LAW’S FRUITCAKE:My mother and I were big fruitcake fans.
I make this rich pumpkin cheesecake with a gingersnap crust only once a year, during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
This old-fashioned apricot tart is a family favorite and is perfect for the short season when fresh apricots are at their peak.
A no-bake strawberry pie, spotlighting berries at the height of their season.
A rich bread pudding that includes white chocolate.
