PIE DAY returns!favorite cookies.
Naturally, cranberries are involved.
White chocolate, on the other hand, is an ingredient that I rarely use.
In this recipe, it's sweetness is toned down with cranberries and walnuts.
I love the cookies so much (and so does everyone that tries them),
that it just seemed logical to make a pie with the same combo.
I can't think of a good name for this pie yet....that is usually S's department-he's a whiz with clever names.
If you have any suggestions, let me know.
For now............I'll just tell it like it is.
Cranberry White Chocolate Walnut Pie
single 9" pie crust
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 T orange juice
3 T flour
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup fresh cranberries
1/3 cup white chocolate chunks
-beat sugar, maple syrup, and eggs together until well combined and frothy
-mix in flour, walnuts, cranberries and chocolate chunks
I couldn't wait any longer, so I cut a slice while the pie was still way to warm. MMMMMmmmmm......
it was gooey and tart and sweet and crunchy and warm, and made me forget all about those below zero temps outside. I'm anxious to try another bite or two once it has cooled and set a bit more, as I think the flavors will become even more distinct. Yep. It's a keeper.
