Cranberry Surprise

Jenn Barrett Recipe

By Jenn Barrett buddahshoes

This dessert has been a staple at family Thanksgivings and Christmases since before I can remember. Once I got old enough and into baking it became my job.

You can use any kind of nut you want, I have used walnuts and hazlenuts so far but would think about pecans or pistachios.
Also, you can probably play around with the cranberries add some other berries or replace them altogether with a mix of berries.

The "original" recipe said to use an 8x8 pan but i prefer a 9" pie plate for both portioning and presentation.
