It is seasonal, great for Christmas, and the beauty of it is you don’t have to make pie crust which some people hate doing! It is from PEI.
This looks oh so good and fewer calories with only one crust.
This is from Natalie Mawhinney. I tried it yesterday and it was great, especially with ice cream! You should try it with your cranberries! Great with ice cream!
What’s not to love? Easy, fewer calories, and great with ice cream! (I know, ice cream has calories. I’m going with the good thing and ignoring the rest!)
Natalie’s Crustless Cranberry Pie
Heat oven to 325 and grease pie plate
Add in layers: 2 cups cranberries on the bottom of the pie plate 1/2 cup walnuts (optional) 1/2 cup sugar
Mix together the following: 1 cup flour 1 cup white sugar 1/2 cup butter, melted 2 eggs, beaten 1 tsp almond extract
Add to the pie plate.
Bake 30-40 minutes.
Notes from the cook: Natalie does not use walnuts. She has also made this using rhubarb. If cranberries are frozen mixture will be very thick.
[Update: I made this last night. Yummy doesn’t begin to describe it. OK, yes, Yummy describes it, but so does sweetly tart, rich, and delicious. It took about twice as long to bake the dough, however, so be prepared to adjust the timing. I’m having some now. For breakfast.]
About WI Women’s Institute is a local, provincial, national and international organization that promotes women, families and communities. Our goal is to empower women to make a difference.
The idea to form a national group was first considered in 1912. In 1914, however, when the war began the idea was abandoned. At the war’s end, Miss Mary MacIsaac, Superintendent of Alberta Women’s Institute, revived the idea. She realized the importance of organizing the rural women of Canada so they might speak as one voice for needed reforms, and the value of co-ordinating provincial groups for a more consistent organization. In February 1919, representatives of the provinces met in Winnipeg, Manitoba, to form the Federated Women’s Institutes of Canada.
