Crustless Cranberry Pie

Intrigued? So was I:@) This Crustless Cranberry Pie couldn't be easier to make and even if pie baking intimidates you, you can make this one folks. While some might say it has more of a cake consistency, it is chewier and moister than cake. This is an old time type recipe that's mixed with a spatula or spoon and the very thick batter needs to be spread out in the pie plate. As with most cranberry/nut items, I think a little freshly grated orange rind would be a nice addition too.
This pie has a bit of pucker power and is best served with coffee or tea.

Crustless Cranberry Pie-from Ocean Breezes & Country Sneezes

  1. Mix flour, sugar and salt. 
  2. Mix in the cranberries and nuts to coat. 
  3. Stir in everything else.
  4. Spoon (very thick) batter into a greased 9" pie plate and smooth out to fill plate.
  5. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream (optional).
Eat well and have a happy day:@)


  1. I love cranberries and this does look pretty darn good. Pinning this recipe!

  2. gosh, i'd love to have some to go with my last cup of coffee...

  3. The cranberry pie sounds wonderful, Lynn. I love cranberries and I love the addition of almond extract, and the orange zest would be great, too. This would be perfect with a cup of tea!

  4. Beautiful photo, Lynn! This looks so pretty and delicious too! I agree with the addition of orange zest (I'm a big fan of orange zest). With cranberries, I bet it does indeed have some "pucker power." :-D Thanks for sharing, Lynn, and have a great day!

  5. I like some tart with my sweet pie...this looks delicious.

  6. I have stocked up on cranberries and this looks like a good use for some of them.


  7. This pie sounds wonderful! I love fresh cranberries, I love that burst of tartness, especially in a delicious dessert! This looks delicious!

  8. Hi Lynn, Your pie looks fantastic! The year is almost over; how did you do on your list of new foods to try?
    Blessings, Beth

  9. It is making me pucker, just imagining it, Lynn!! You do come up with some of the most interesting items. This one reminds me of the fresh sour cherry cobbler my Mom used to make, from the cherries off our own trees. We would spend hours picking the fruit & she would then pit them, BY HAND, & turn them into the most fabulous cherry pie & cherry cobbler. None of us kids seem to be able to duplicate hers. We should have written them down while we had the chance. :(
    Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

  10. Wow! All that in 5 steps! Easy as pie : )

  11. I made a copy of the recipe. You put it in a pie shaped pan or could you put it in 8x8? Looks wonderful.

  12. Sounds delicious to me! I don't mind puckering a bit! And we had a happy bunch here today with both the Packers and Colts winning :)

  13. Lynn, I'm wishing I had a slice for my coffee this morning, I love quick baking recipes that don't require a mixer! I pinned this to my Merry Cranberry board :)

  14. I love a pie with pucker power! I hate to make crust, so this is right up my alley! :)

  15. What a fun dessert! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  16. yum, it's actually a cake baked in a pie shape, right?

    1. Howdy! A bit wetter and denser, if I had to choose... I'd say it's more like a brownie:@)

  17. Pucker power :) That's what cranberries are good at and why I love them so much. What a great idea!


Thanks for stopping by!
