Cranberry Tangerine Pecan Mini Pies

Cape Cod Select Premium Frozen Cranberries will really get your creative cranberry juices going. The smells that came from my kitchen when I made these darling little Cranberry Tangerine Pecan Mini Pies were the kind that conjure up warm fuzzy feelings of coziness.


Loaded with vitamins and antioxidants now is the time of year to take full advantage of all the benefits of cranberries by adding them into daily meals. Cranberries are super versatile so try them in main dishes and appetizers too. October through December is when they're at peak time and that makes cranberries perfect for all your holiday recipes.


I ended up making 2 batches and freezing one of them so all I had to do was warm them up in the oven before company dropped by but be sure to cover the little pies with foil when you do. All the wonderful spice scents filled my house again and your guests will love it!


I folded in a bit of the reserved cooking liquid from the cranberries to make a spiced cranberry whipped cream. It's optional but we like it!
