Mixes in minutes, so it's great for a last-minute emergency holiday dessert. If you make it a day ahead, the cranberries mellow a little. Great with orange-nutmeg whipped cream!

- 12 tablespoons butter, very soft or melted
- 1 cup sugar

- Grease a 10- to 12-inch pie or flan dish. Spread the berries, pecans in the dish. Sprinkle with sugar.

This tort is fantastic! Easy and quick to make and the taste and texture are incredible! I'm buying fresh cranberries to freeze, so we can have it when they are out of season and unavailable! May try it again with another fruiit. Thank you, fllluffernutter, for posting this excellent dessert! 1
