So if you mix cranberries and pecan with unbaked pie crust and just layer in on top, bake the same as the original recipe 350 for 30 mins, it will bake the same but as a traditional casserole?
Delicious, but liked it so much I had to immediately figure out a less labor-intensive way to do the cranberry-pecan crusts. On the second try, I just sprinkled them over the meat mixture, topped with uncooked pie crust, and baked at 350° for 30 minutes, same as before. I actually liked it better, because the cranberry/pecan mixture incorporated a bit more into the main dish instead of just sitting on top of it. We love this dish.
Tastes great and a nice change for the holiday season (or any time). Don't put the crusts out to soon or they'll be gone before the dish is done!
