I had no idea it could be so easy to make a cranberry tart. I thought those little (sometimes pocket-sized) pies would surely be one of the hardest things I’d ever learn to make. I was so very happily wrong! Cranberries are so good! My mom always made sure I satisfied all my cranberry kicks as a kid. (I had a lot of them).

Ingredients for a Cranberry Tart

We’ll go with a nice, simple recipe.

  • whole prepared pie crust at room temperature (you could alter the technique and line a muffin pan with the crust for mini versions)
  • flour or cornmeal to thicken the filling
  • 4+ cups of cranberries tossed in honey, 5 and a half or 6 cups of berries are ideal for me
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ground cinnamon
  • ground nutmeg
  • lemon and orange zest (with maybe a drizzle of orange juice)
  • a small bit of butter

What Do I Do?

  1. Set the oven’s temperature to about 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Put some flour over your baking area and get a pie dish ready.
  3. Even the crust out in the dish, making sure you can fold the edges over about half of the cranberry tart center.
  4. Combine the cranberries, nutmeg, zests, and flour in a bowl before pouring it into the center of the dish.
  5. Resist the urge to spread the fruit all the way out to the edges. This will allow for an end crust.
  6. Place little slivers of butter throughout the filling or a little in the center.
  7. Bake your cranberry tart for around an hour or until it reaches optimal bubbliness. (The outer crust will be slightly browned.)

Now, if you’re not too fond of the lip-smacking tartness a cranberry has to offer, you may want to add a bit more sugar to your recipe. It will become sweeter (duh) and much more delectable, but don’t let it turn into a cobbler! It is supposed to be a tart, after all! I hope your dish is a success! Thank you for learning with me!
