Slow Cooker Turkey Legs
I learned that removing the turkey legs from the turkey and cooking them separately, the turkey breast will come out more tender. After some trouble removing the legs, I eyeballed the seasoning and but did not wrap in aluminum foil because I didn't think it was necessary. I added a little water to the bottom. The meat was tender, not oily, flavorful and fell off the bones. I was cautious to remove the splintered bone as recommended by another reviewer (GOOD TIP!). I will use the juice to make the gravy, because cooking the breast separately produced very little juice (mostly fat) and the breast was more tender than usual.

Rustic Autumn Fruit Tart
I had difficulty with the dough. I used the food processor method and refrigerating it made it hard to work with. I ended up pressing it into the tart pan. I consulted a favorite cookbook recipe which recommended adding confectioners sugar to the dough for sweetness, so I brushed some on top of the dough inthe pan. to prevent the juice from making the crust soggy, they also recommended brushing the jam onto the crust before adding the apples, which I did. I used an apple peeler/corer/slicer to get uniform slices and hand sliced the pear. Rather than mix the apples with the sauce, I arranged the slices in the tart pan in a circle and intermingled the pear. I poured the sauce on top and brushed it around but used a little less OJ because my apples were a little soft. It's baking and looks fabulous but I;m rating this a 4 because the dough was hard to work with.

Cream of Pumpkin Soup
I would use light cream instead of heavy cream. The cream overpowered the pumpkin and it tasted more like cream of onion soup. So I added more pumpkin to compensate the threw in a sprig of fresh thyme for a little more flavor. I gave it five stars based on my modifications but if I were to rate it on the original recipe, would have rated it at four stars.
