I didn't take this awesome picture--it's from the NPR website (Andrew Pockrose). Yes, it's as delicious as it looks.
Preheat the oven to 350 and butter a 9" or 10" pie plate.
2 c. cranberries (fresh or frozen), coarsely chopped*
1/2 c. walnuts, coarsely chopped*
1/2 c. sugar
3/4 c. melted butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. flour
1 tsp. almond extract
*(Retain some of the most attractive cranberries and walnuts for decoration)
Toss together the chopped cranberries, walnuts, and sugar for the filling. Place this mixture in the buttered pie plate and pat it down gently.
Decorate the surface of the batter with walnuts and cranberries. Place in the oven and bake at 350 for 40 minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned and the entire surface is crusted over. The pie will be dense and delicately flavored.
