I received a short and sweet email from my father-in-law, Tony with a recipe attached for “Crustless Cranberry Pie”. The email stated, “Mickie thought you might like the recipe,” from your favorite PAPA in law. 🙂
I decided to play with the original recipe though because….that is what I do. 🙂 The original recipe called for 1 1/2 cups of sugar….and I was able to reduce the sugar to just 4 tablespoons! I pulled the wheat flour out and made it gluten free–added some orange zest and vanilla to the topping….and finally used a mixture of frozen whole cranberries and blueberries.
I love nuts too…and this recipe calls for walnuts, a source of heart healthy omega 3s. Here is a great post in the NY times blog on the health benefits of nuts!
Russ and I ate 2 helpings each. But one slice is probably a better idea. I mean, moderation in everything, right!?
