Sugar Free Cranberry Raisin Pie

Sugar Free Cranberry Raisin Pie<---Back to the recipe index

  • 3 c. cranberries (1 bag)
  • 2 c. water
  • 1 c. raisins
  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • 0.75 c. honey
  • pie crust for 1.5 - 2 crusts

Combine the cranberries, raisins, and 1.5 cups of water in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until the cranberries pop (about ten minutes.)  Mix the flour into the last half cup of water and slowly pour it into the hot cranberry mixture, stirring often to prevent lumps from forming.  Add the honey and cook a bit longer until the sauce begins to thicken.

Make the crust using your favorite recipe.  Divide it into two unequal parts and use the larger part to make the bottom cust.  Pour the filling into the bottom crust and use the smaller part of the pie dough to make a lattice on top.  (Roll out the dough and  cut it into strips, then place them in a criss-crossed pattern on top of the pie.)  Bake at 450 F for 5 minutes, then at 350 F for 30 minutes until the top crust is slightly brown.

I like to make pies in a cake pan as is shown here --- more filling fits before it bubbles out the top!
