If you like cranberries

I am bringing back this delicious dessert  because it is easy to put together and always a huge hit for a big meal like the upcoming Thanksgiving,  And if you are going as a guest tell them "I'll bring the dessert".    We have already had our family Thankful Day but I'm goin to make this for when Sister and Bro in law come up for the day next week.  I see a good hearty soup and this tasty dessert after an afternoon at the movies.
 
Cranberry Tart
3 cups (12 oz bag) rinsed cranberries
¾ cup chopped pecans
½ cup sugar
¾ cup melted butter
2 large eggs slightly beaten
2 tbls orange juice ***
1 cup sugar
1 cup all purpose flour

Butter and lightly flour a deep 10 inch pie plate or a 10 x 2 quiche dish.

Place cranberries in the bottom of the pan, sprinkle with the pecan pieces, then sprinkle the ½ cup sugar.

Now in a bowl combine the melted butter, eggs, juice (when I have a fresh orange I will add a bit of orange zest) and the 1 cup of sugar. Add the flour and whisk till smooth. Pour mixture over the cranberries.

Bake at 325 degrees for approximately 45 minutes. Insert the old toothpick in the center to check for doneness.

Let cool…………………add a scoop of really good vanilla ice cream or not.

Thank you. I am always on the lookout for desserts, my husband will enjoy. He is not a fan of anything too sweet or gooey or creamy (whipped) so this sounds perfect.
