We’ve been publishing Thanksgiving recipes for years on StyleBlueprint, and we stand behind each of them as blue ribbon winners … you know, blue ribbon in our own households!

Before we get started with all the rest of the recipes we have today, we want to introduce you to the Tarta de Santiago. This┬ádessert is deceptively simple. In fact, the entire ingredient list consists of just almonds, eggs, sugar, lemon and orange zest, almond extract and confectioners sugar. That’s it! This is sure to be a new favorite at many holiday tables … and other occasions as well.
