If you like cranberries……..

This is a great buffet dessert or even after the turkey or prime rib Thank Full meal that's just around the corner.

Cranberry Nut Tart
  • 3 cups (12 oz bag) rinsed cranberries
  • ¾ cup chopped pecans 
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup melted butter
  • 2 large eggs slightly beaten
  • 2 tbls orange juice
  • 1 cup sugar  ***
  • 1 cup all purpose flour


 Butter and lightly flour a deep 10 inch pie plate or a 10 x 2 quiche dish.

Place cranberries in the bottom of the pan, sprinkle with the pecan pieces, then sprinkle the ½ cup sugar.

Now in a bowl combine the melted butter, eggs, juice and the 1 cup of sugar. Add the flour and whisk till smooth. Pour mixture over the cranberries.

***If I have any oranges on hand I sometimes grate maybe a tsp of the orange rind into the wet ingredients. 
Bake at 325 degrees for approximately 45 minutes. Insert the old toothpick in the center to check for doneness.

Let cool…………………add a scoop of really good vanilla ice cream or not.
