Cranberry Nut Pie

Today I'd love to share a recipe with you that we LOVE.

Cranberry Nut Pie

This is so easy to make.  First make or buy a single pie crust.  Fit it to a 9 inch pie plate and flute the edge.

Pour in 2 cups whole cranberries, fresh or frozen.  Sprinkle with 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional).  I only had a tablespoon of walnut crumbs so I sprinkled those over the cranberries to add a bit of nutty flavor.  But my favorite is to add the nuts.

Top with 1/3 cup brown sugar.

Mix together 1 egg, 1/3 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup flour and 1/3 cup softened butter.

Mix until it's very light in color. 

Top pie with mixture and spread around to cover cranberries.

Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.  The top should be nicely golden.
Allow to cool and serve with whipped cream.
