Eat a Cranberry Day, Thanksgiving Day, November 23rd

Eat a Cranberry Day
Just one. Don't eat any more, or you might ruin the day.

On a personal note, checkout the pecan pies of there. The are both the same recipe but baked using different techniques.

1 1/2 cup toasted & chopped pecans (Must be toasted about 10 min @ 300 degrees)
4 Tablespoons Melted Butter
1/cup-3/4 cup brown sugar (accordong to taste)
1 cup Pure Maple Syrup
1 Tablespoon (that's right 1 (one) Tablespoon) of Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Cream butter with sugar at high speed to get all the sugar lumps out, add vanilla and salt. Mix until very well mixed. Add eggs one by one each whipping one into the sugar misture. Brown your crust at of set at 275 for 10 minutes. Place nuts in bottom of pie pan, pour sugar mixture over the top of pie. Now, you can bake at 300 for one hour, and have the lighter pie effect, or at 400 for 30-45 minutes for the darker effect.
It will be very interesting (for me at least) to see how they taste since turned out so differently in appearance. I guess I will have to wait until tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving to all and to all a good night!
