Nantucket Cranberry Pie

Standard

You are at the right blog, I thought a change would be nice. What do you think of the new look? I am liking it!

Sorry for being MIA, it has been a busy couple of months. I have so much to share, but not sure where to begin and that is why I have not posted in a while. So, I think I will just share a recipe.

Jim, by cooking buddy sent me this recipe. It is the perfect time of year to make this recipe, since cranberries are in the stores right now. So, if you got a bag of cranberries hanging around, this is a super easy and tasty way to get rid of them. I believe he found the recipe on Food Network Website.

Nantucket Cranberry Pie
  • 2 cups chopped fresh cranberries (I used whole bag and I just realized I did not chop them!)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
Spread the cranberries, walnuts and 1/2 cup sugar in the bottom of a 9″ or 10″ cake pan (or skillet or anything else you might have lying around).  Mix the rest of the ingredients in a separate bowl to form a batter.  Pour the batter over the cranberry mixture and bake in an oven preheated to 350 for around 40 minutes.  Cool a bit in the pan, and enjoy
Notes: I used pecans instead of the walnuts (because that is what I had). Jim also used pecans, but used vanilla instead of almond extract. Being the almond lover that I am, I used the almond extract. I think next time, I try sliced almonds in place of the walnuts 🙂
As you can see, it really does not look like a pie. I think it is more like a coffee cake.
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet or have your decorations all up? I have started shopping, but need to start on the decoration asap!
