Cranberry Walnut Tart

My top seller in the bakery for Thanksgiving was this Cranberry Walnut Tart.  It is sweet and tangy with a hint of orange and cinnamon. It can be made in advance and freezes very well.  If you are looking for a dessert that is just as lovely as it is quick to make, this is it!

In a bowl, whisk together:       
3 Tabl. Flour
½ cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Cinnamon

Whisk in:
4 oz. Butter, melted and cooled
½ cup dark Corn Syrup
2 Eggs, whole
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Zest of 1/2 orange

In bottom of  partially baked tart crust* place:
2 cups Fresh or Frozen Cranberries whole
1 cup Walnuts

Pour liquid ingredients over the nuts and berries.  Bake in 350 degree oven for approx. 30 minutes or until lightly browned and center is set.  Cool.

* Recipe for tart dough is in archives
