  • 1 frozen pie crust
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 and 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/8 tablespoon nutmeg
  • 1 and 1/2 cup fresh cranberries, roughly chopped
  • sprinkle of cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe mixing bowl, add eggs. Beat until they start to froth.
  3. Add butter, sugar and flour. Beat until smooth.
  4. Stir in buttermilk, vanilla, lemon juice, nutmeg and cranberries. Place in microwave for two minutes on high heat, stir vigorously, then add to pie crust.
  5. Lightly sprinkle top of pie with cinnamon (cinnamon/sugar mix is also great).
  6. Bake for 40 to 60 minutes, until the center is firm. A good way to test is to gently shake the pie and see if the middle wiggles at all.


  • You will need to use crust covers for the first 30 minutes or so to keep the crust from burning. I make my own with aluminum foil, or you can find them in most stores.
  • PLEASE do not skip the microwave step! It’s crucial to getting the pie to “set” in a reasonable amount of time. Otherwise, you’ll have bake the full 60 minutes, and your crusts will likely burn.
