This is a simple recipe that uses just a few ingredients: cranberries, an orange, sugar and pie crust. You can use it for many other types of fillings such as mincemeat or jam.
12 oz bag of cranberries
sugar to taste
enough pie crust for 3 9 inch pies
Preheat oven to 375
Finely cut up cranberries and the orange together. I use a food processor for this. Add sugar to taste, probably half a cup or more.
Cook for 5 minutes on high in the microwave or the equivalent on the stove top until it looks like jam or pie filling.
Spoon filling into the tars taking care not to fill to the top or it will bubble out when cooked. Cut circles out for the lids, slicing vents into the top to allow hot air to escape.
Cook for 20 minutes or until slightly brown.
This makes about two dozen tarts depending on your tart tins.
