Total Time: 55 minutes
Servings: 4 -8


  • 2 Cups Cranberry Sauce or make cranberry sauce using 2 cups cranberries, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water-bring ingredients to a boil and reduce to low for 20 minutes, let cool and set
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 stick of butter melted in the microwave
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1/2 teaspon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • coarse white sparkling sugar for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350. Using four small tart cups (mine were 4 inch diameter paper baking tart liners found at Bed Bath and Beyond) place 1/4 of the cranberry sauce at the bottom of each, then sprinkle the chopped walnuts over the cranberry sauce. In a bowl mix together the eggs, melted butter, sugar, flour salt, vanilla and almond extracts. Using a spoon distribute batter (which will be very thick) among the four tart cups. Sprinkle a little coarse sugar on top of each tart cup.
  • Bake the tartlets for 45 minutes (I put mine on a cookie sheet before putting it into the oven in case of spills), until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and serve warm or with ice cream (what I was originally looking for in the freezer when I came across the frozen cranberry sauce haha).
