Fresh Cranberry Pie

Recipe by cathyfood

This recipe was adapted from one I found in Gourmet Magazine over 10 years ago. It is more like a buttery pound cake over a filling of chopped cranberries and walnuts, than an actual pie. It is wonderful served with a little whipped cream and a cup of tea. I usually cut the butter back to 1/2 cup plus a little.

DELICIOUS! Perfect balance of sweet and tart! I substituted orange oil because I had no almond extract. Made for my Preemie Adoption, Spring PAC 2011.
