Ahoy there! It's a rainy fall day in the Carolinas and I have a quiet minute to share a new recipe. This is cranberry season so I purchased a bag of fresh cranberries and whipped up this dessert the other night. It's been a hit in our house with the sweet cobblery-ness mixing with the tart cranberry...and of COURSE it's topped off with some vanilla bean ice cream. It's a unique twist that gives you something fun to do with cranberries besides make sauce.
Let's get started...
2 cups fresh cranberries
1.5 cups sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
2 beaten eggs
1 stick of melted butter
1 cup of flour
Thats it? That's IT!
Grease a 9 inch pie pan and pour your cranberries in there. Aren't they pretty?
Next, pour 1/2 a cup of sugar and the nuts on top.
In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, 1 cup of sugar, melted butter and flour. It turns into a gloppy goo that will eventually bake into an amazing cobbler crust.
Pour this over your cranberries and bake for 1 hour at 325 degrees.
While it's still warm, scoop out generous helpings into dessert bowls and top with vanilla bean ice cream.
It's sweet, it's tart, it's soooo good!
Have a delicious day friends!
