Nantucket Cranberry Pie

No rolling, no whipping, no peeling — this is our kind of pie — quick, simple and praiseworthy! While not overly sweet thanks to the tart berries, this pie is reminiscent of a French clafoutis: a dessert made with fresh fruit and covered with a thick batter.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh cranberries, chopped
  • ½ cup walnuts, chopped
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • Whipped topping or ice cream, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 10-inch pie pan.

  2. Chop cranberries and walnuts. Mix with brown sugar and place mixture in the buttered pie pan.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, butter, sugar, flour, salt and almond extract. Stir until batter is smooth and spoon it over the cranberry/walnut mixture.

  4. Bake for 40 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream when cooled.

  • Is this a 3/4 cup of butter or 3/4 stick of butter?

  • In your January issue there is a noted correction to the Nantucket Cranberry Pie( which is delicious). It mentions 3/4cup of butter,melted & cooled. That’s what my recipe says also. What is the correction?

    • In the December print version we accidentally left off CUP, so it just said 3/4 butter. It has been corrected online. The correct measurement is 3/4 cup of butter, melted and cooled. We are sorry for any confusion, but glad it turned out delicious for you.
