I don't know why I never thought of a Cranberry Pie before. I'm sure others have made them, but honestly, I have never heard of one. I love tart pies....apple, rhubarb, lemon, lime, etc. I will categorize this one as such. This pie will serve 10, as you do not need a really big piece to be satisfied. It is perfect served a la mode. Being a cranberry thing......it is a big contender for the Holiday Baking List!

Ingredients

2 1/3 c
flour
3/4 tsp
salt
14 Tbsp
cold unsalted butter, cut in pats
5 Tbsp
ice water

FOR THE FILLING

12 oz pkg
fresh cranberries
1/4 c
flour
1 1/4 c
sugar
1/8 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1 Tbsp
cold unsalted butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
To make the pastry, place the 2 1/3 cup flour and 3/4 tsp salt in a food processor. Pulse to mix. Add the butter pats and pulse approx 24 times or until a coarse meal is achieved.
2
Add 4 Tbsp of the ice water and pulse dough 12 times. Add the other 1 Tbsp of ice water and pulse until the dough starts to come together, about 12 times.
3
Place dough in bowl and gather with hands to form a ball. Divide in half and make 2 discs. Stack between sheets of waxed paper and chill in fridge for 20-30 minutes.
4
Meanwhile, make the filling by rinsing the fresh cranberries in a colander and draining well.
5
Measure the flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl and mix well. Add the cranberries and toss well.
6
Roll out one of the discs on a well floured surface to fit in a 9 inch pie pan. Line the pie pan with the pastry.
7
Place all the cranberries in the pie shell. Distribute the sugar mix evenly. Dot with the cold butter.
8
Roll out second disc for the top crust on a well floured surface. Place on top of lower crust and cranberries and seal the edges well. Cut a hole and vents in the top of the crust.
9
Bake in a 425 degree oven for 12 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 degrees and bake 48-53 minutes more. The filling will be bubbling and the crust will be nicely colored. Use a pie shield if the edges of the crust start to burn.
10
Cool pie on a rack. Serve warm or room temp. This pie is delicious with vanilla ice cream.
