The holidays can be crazy! There's so much to do over the next few weeks and you'll probably have guests or plan to attend a holiday party. If you need a delicious, easy-to-make dessert to serve to your friends or family or to present as a hostess gift, then this crustless tart is the way to go. It's so easy that my male sous chef helped out this time.
What's your favorite super easy dish to make during this hectic, but wonderfully magical time of year?
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
2 cups fresh cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans
¼ teaspoon pure almond extract
¾ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease one 9-inch pie pan.
Combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Stir in the cranberries and the pecans, and toss to
coat. Stir in the butter, beaten eggs, vanilla and almond extracts. Add cinnamon and
cloves. Spread the batter into the prepared pan. It will look more like cake batter than pie
filling. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted near the
center comes out clean. Serve warm. A scoop of vanilla ice cream or real whipped cream tastes great on this pie.
