Cranberry Pecan Pie with 10 Minute No Mess Pie Crust

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestmail

 

I drove by about 20 wild turkey in our neighborhood a couple days ago and thought, oh boy…I better get my Thanksgiving butt in gear grocery shopping list together if we’re going to have Thanksgiving dinner at our house.  It was going to be just the four of us for dinner (our families live out of state), but my oldest daughter decided to invite her college roommate for the holiday weekend because she would be spending Thanksgiving alone in the dorm 😯 .  We couldn’t let that happen, no way.  So, as I began to ponder the pies, I thought it was about time my very popular pie crust recipe “10 Minute No Mess Pie Crust” had it’s very own video!  I mean it has seriously helped hundreds, possibly even thousands 😯 of people make a pie crust with ease.  I also decided to include my favorite pie filling for this easy crust…”cranberry pecan”.  I hope you enjoy the video “Cranberry Pecan Pie with 10 Minute No Mess Crust” below.  I also hope it will prove to you how very simple this pie crust is to use for just about any one crust pie.

Okay, here’s the Cranberry Pecan Pie with the 10 Minute No Mess Crust after it’s all ready.  It looks so beautiful with the fresh cranberries, and is perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any time of year.  Just look at how perfect that crust looks.  Sure does come out of the pie plate nice and easy, too.  It always drives me nuts when the crust sticks.

Let’s not waste any time gabbing, here’s the video on how easy that crust really is…

Just in case you prefer to see the basic steps in photos, I have that for you below, too.  Now remember…this crust can be used with any 1 crust pie including, but certainly not limited to: Dutch Apple (here’s my recipe), Black Berry Pie (here’s my recipe), and of course pumpkin.  I have had many readers make this crust for the top of a pie as well, but I have never tried it.  Here’s the original pie crust post with 61 comments- many of them discussing the different option to try with this crust, including swapping out different ingredients.

Step 1.  Combine ingredients in pie plate.

Step 4.  Use your hands to spread crust ball out, and then pinch edges with a fork or your fingers.  I use my thumb for this look 😎 .  Did I mention there’s no rolling?  Yah, there’s no rolling.

Here’s the final luscious, scrumptious, gorgeous Cranberry Pecan Pie after it comes out of the oven and cools for a bit.  Important tip-I always protect my crusts with one of these very inexpensive crust protectors.  The cranberries not only add a zing to the very sweet pecan pie filling, they make it look very festive, too.  As I mentioned earlier, it’s perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any special time you want a pie.  Heck I rather have this than cake on my 50th next year.  Don’t forget the whipped topping.  I use cool whip.  I am not ashamed.

CRANBERRY PEACAN PIE w/ 10 MINUTE NO MESS PIE CRUST (USE FOR ANY 1 CRUST PIE)

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 8

 CRANBERRY PEACAN PIE w/ 10 MINUTE NO MESS PIE CRUST (USE FOR ANY 1 CRUST PIE)

Flakey, tasty, easy no mess, no roll, 10 minute pie crust recipe plus the sweet & tangy cranberry pecan pie filling.

Ingredients

  • CRUST:
  • 1/2 cup canola oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 1/4 cup skim milk (any milk works)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1  1/2 cups all purpose flour (this is the only flour I have tried)
  • CRANBERRY PECAN PIE FILLING:
  • 1 cup Karo light syrup
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans -not chopped (6 oz.)
  • 1 cup fresh, raw, rinsed cranberries (they are found in the produce section in a bag usually)
  • garnish: whipped topping

Instructions

CRUST:

Combine all "crust" ingredients together into pie plate. You can double it (I did not) for an extra thick crust.

Mix with spoon or clean hands until you can shape it into a ball with your hands (happens pretty easily and quickly).

Press dough out and up sides of plate with fingers to desired thickness.

Make a pretty crust top with a fork, or pinching it with your fingers (I use a pie crust protector when baking my pie-see product above in post.)

Set aside raw crust and add your desired pie filling when ready to bake.

CRANBERRY PECAN PIE FILLING:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine first 5 ingredients above together in a medium bowl (syrup, eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla).

Add whole pecans and stir.

Add cranberries and stir in gently.

Pour into unbaked prepped pie crust (easy no roll recipe above).

Help some of the cranberries to the top of the filling so they will be seen after it's baked.

Bake approximately 70 minutes (watch crust-cover edges of crust with metal crust protector-see product above in post), and let cool for 1-2 hours.

Serve with a dollop or 2 of whipped topping.

Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 5 days.

YUMMY!

    I must try both your crust recipe and the pie! We are surrounded by pecan trees but the hurricane that came through last month blew all the pecans down before they had ripened! If you put your awesome video on FB, I’ll share it!

    Hi Julie…as usual…yummy! I will definitely give this a try. I have been using your crust recipe for my Dutch Crumb Apple Pies, since I saw your first posting of it. Everyone loves it! It is not only very simple to make, but absolutely delicious. I am definitely going to try it with my pumpkin pies this year. An absolute time saver, and well worth it. Thank you, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  3. Pecan pie was my dads favorite, he would of loved this!
