Recipe Thursday - Cranberry Nut Dessert
It is from a long ago issue of Taste of Home and was submitted by Peggy Van Arsdale.
As shown in the first photo, this is a really stiff mix if you use frozen cranberries. It will be tough to mix in the dry stuff, but keep working at it and it will blend in.
I made this for our Valentines Dessert night at my fencing club. It was a huge hit with the parents and I had to sneak a bit home for hubby to enjoy.
Cranberry Nut Dessert
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup butter melted, you can use margarine, but I haven't tried that
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Add cranberries and nuts; toss to coat.
Stir in the butter, eggs and extract (mixture will be very thick if using frozen berries).
Spread into a greased 9 inch pie plate. Bake at 350 F for 40 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near the centre comes out clean.
Serve warm with whipped dream or ice cream if desired.
