This Christmas season, explore cranberries in a whole new way. Cranberry Tarts make for a festive dessert for winter parties, holiday dinners, or simply for you and the kids to enjoy.

Ingredients

1-1/2 cups sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp allspice

1 large apple (peeled, cored and

diced)

3 clementines (or tangerines)

1 cup cranberries

1/2 cup chopped pecans

Uncooked tart pastry or pie crust

Cooking Instructions

Mix sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and apple in a heavy saucepan.

Wash clementines, remove stem and cut in half. Chop into pieces and remove the seeds, but leave the peel on. Chop the unpeeled clementines in a blender or food processor (use metal blades).

Add clementines, plus cranberries and pecans to the saucepan.

Cook over medium heat until the cranberries burst. Cool.

You can prepare the mixture in advance and use it in tarts or to make a pie with a latticed top.

For the pie, cook at 400 degF for 30 to 35 minutes. For tarts, cook at 400 degF for 10 to 15 minutes (until the edges are slightly brown).
