No Crust Cranberry Pie

People, I am facing an eminent threat.  There are a lot of cranberries in my freezer.  Ok, so maybe it’s not THAT big of a deal, but by the time I move out of my apartment next month, I can’t have any frozen things.  So it’s time for a cranberry baking spree!

Fresh cranberries (although frozen, they’re still fresh-ish) are great additions to baked goods.  I like making bars, pies, muffins, scones, and whatever else I can stir them into.

The other day I made a cranberry pie and brought it to work to share.  I love a traditional pie with a buttery flaky crust and a gooey center.  But I also love being lazy, which was the case here.  Making the pie batter double as a crust base is one of the greatest baking creations of all time.  It took me about 5 minutes to make this pie, which is ridiculous.

For a quick, delicious pie, you cannot go wrong here.

Don’t cut up the cranberries, otherwise they’ll make the pie soggy.  Keeping them whole keeps the pie firm and every bite burst with sweetness.

You can also do an optional streusel topping here, but I didn’t have enough walnuts for it.  Either way, it’s delicious.  By the time I went on break at work, the pie was gone.  Lucky for me I had a slice as soon as it cooled out of the oven.

Oh yeah baby…
