Prep Time: 15 minutes, 40 to bake

Note: This is more like a coffee cake than a pie but it has a great flavor and texture. I tweaked it…as usual and I added some notes on other fruit options to try in the recipe.
1 C all-purpose flour (I use unbleached)
1 C white sugar (I use Baker’s sugar)
1/4 t salt
2 C frozen cranberries (or try with frozen blueberries or raspberries or blackberries!)
1/2 C butter, melted
1 t almond extract
1. Preheat over to 350 degrees F. Grease one 9″ pie pan.
2. Combine the flour, sugar and salt. Stir in the cranberries (or other berries) and toss to coat. Stir in the butter, beaten eggs and almond extract. *When using frozen fruits, the mixture will be VERY thick and hard to spread. This is a good thing! “Spread” the batter as best you can into the prepared pan.
3. Bake for 40 minutes or until a wooden pick comes out clean. This “pie” makes a yummy crust, but you have to serve it immediately otherwise you lose it. It is great warm with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
*I LOVE and adore the taste of almond, but if you don’t like it, try vanilla in this recipe instead.
