About the Recipe

Cranberries are a northern Wisconsin tradition! Grown in local cranberry bogs, they are plentiful in the autumn months. If you're craving even more cranberries, check out one of the many local Cranberry Festivals!


  • 2 cups Sugar

  • 1/4 cup Flour

  • 1/4 tsp Salt

  • 3 cups Fresh Cranberries, halved

  • 1 tsp Almond Extract

  • 1/2 cup Water

  • Prepared Pie Crust (store bought or homemade)


Step 1

Preheat your oven th 425°F. In a sauce pan, combine sugar, flour, salt, cranberries, and water. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Continue to boil for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.

Step 2

Prepare the pie crust. Use your favorite recipe or purchase a ready made crust. Stir the almond extract into the cranberry mixture and pour into the pie crust. 

Step 3

If wanting a double crust pie (closed top) add the second layer of pastry, crimp the edges and cut vent slits into the top. If wanting an uncvered pie, skip this step.

Step 4

Bake in your preheated oven for 30-40 minutes, checking teh crust isn't browing too quickly every 10 minutes. If you notice the crust is browning too quickly, cover pie with aluminum foil and continue baking. 

Step 5

Let cool before serving. Best served lightly dusted with powdered sugar and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.
