While the buttery, maple-scented filling is inspired by classic pecan pie, we swap in toasted walnuts and add chopped fresh cranberries for a beautiful pop of color and tart flavor contrast that cuts the sweetness.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Roll dough into an 11-inch circle; fit into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Fold edges under; flute. Line bottom of dough with a piece of foil; arrange pie weights or dried beans on foil. Bake at 425° for 5 minutes. Remove pie weights and foil; bake 1 minute. Cool on a wire rack.

Step 3

Reduce oven temperature to 350°.

Step 4

Combine maple syrup and next 6 ingredients (through eggs) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Gently stir in cranberries and walnuts. Pour cranberry mixture into prepared crust. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until filling is just set, shielding edges of piecrust with foil after 30 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

Enjoyable and tart. It's like a pecan pie with cranberries, so you feel like you're eating more healthily!

Like a pecan pie with cranberries pretty much sums it up. But it's a refreshing twist on the classic and probably much healthier too. I've made it twice now and loved it both times. I don't do store-bought pie crust, so I used a pat-in pie crust recipe from America's Test Kitchen and that worked fine.
