Nine-year-old Alex Walters is a cooking enthusiast who especially loves to bake. With less than a week until Thanksgiving 2013, he joined HuffPost Live on Friday to prepare for his own Turkey Day feast with a little help from dessert guru Dorie Greenspan.
The professional chef and cookbook author gave Walters top-notch tips, but he certainly didn't need much guidance. He showed off his latest creation, an Italian pie called a crostata, and offered a peek into his own kitchen as the delicious treat came together.
