If you've followed Posed Perfection for very long, you know that I love easy recipes. During the hustle and bustle of this Christmas season, this Crustless Cranberry Orange Pie is bound to become one of your new favorites. It certainly has become one of mine. With its tart cranberries and hint of orange, each sweet bite just tastes like Christmas.
Here's what you need: fresh cranberries, orange zest, flour, sugar, salt, eggs, melted butter, pecans and vanilla.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Gently stir in cranberries and pecans, tossing to coat.
Zest an orange to obtain about 1 tsp. of zest.
In small bowl, beat eggs with whisk and add in zest and vanilla.
Pour into flour mixture and stir gently to completely combine ingredients.
Move the batter to a pie pan sprayed with oil. The batter will be pretty thick. Try to spread it out evenly.
This step is not necessary, but it does make it a little prettier on top of the pie. Press a few cranberries into the batter, so that when they pop in the oven, they will leave beautiful berry-red splashes of color.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tsp. orange zest
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9-inch pie plate. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Add in cranberries and pecans; toss to coat. In small bowl, beat the eggs and stir in the orange zest and vanilla. Pour melted butter and egg mixture into cranberries, stirring to combine thoroughly. Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake for 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
Bake up several to give to your kids' teachers or neighbors with a sweet note wishing a "Berry" Christmas. It's guaranteed to be a hit. This pie is versatile enough to be breakfast, a sweet treat for afternoon tea, or a delicious dessert topped with ice cream. Which way would you enjoy it?
