Tasty Tuesday

                  Whew, made it through Thanksgiving didn't we! Now the holiday rush is on so from here on out, I'll be sharing my favorite Christmas recipes on Tasty Tuesdays and I'm starting with my annual cranberry pie. My youngest son looks forward to this pie all year, now with a little family of his own, it's become a traditional Christmas dessert. Even my ex- husband wants the recipe!

Cranberry Pie
aka Christmas Pie

Pastry for a 2 crust pie
3 c. fresh cranberries
2 Tbsp. flour
2 c. sugar
1/4 t. salt
2/3 c. boiling water
1 c. raisins
2 tsp. grated lemon peel
2 Tbsp. butter
Remove stems from berries and wash well. Combine flour, sugar and salt in saucepan. Stir in cranberries, water, raisins and lemon peel. Cover and cook till berries pop. Remove from heat and add butter. Cool to lukewarm. Pour filling into pastry lined 9" pie pan, top with crust or lattace strips. Bake in a 425 oven for 40 -50 min. or till juices bubble and crust is brown.

   Nothing smells like Christmas like this pie baking that will have your taste buds dancing for joy! I'm decking the halls today, just about got the kitchen done, I got the gingerbread tree up and twinkling and my little retro tree with my cookie cutters is up too. The big tree for the living room will come this weekend, I should have the rest of the house done by then! Now, off to email the ex-hubby this recipe before I forget! Tis the season!
