Upside-Down Cranberry Crunch
Jennifer Cizek of Eagle River, Arkansas shared this family-favorite recipe. It's the perfect dessert for a happy ending to the day.
3 c. cranberries
1-3/4 c. sugar, divided
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 c. all-purpose flour
Garnish: whipped cream or ice cream
Place cranberries in a greased 8"x8" baking pan. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup sugar and pecans. In a mixing bowl, blend together eggs, butter, flour and remaining sugar until smooth. Spread over cranberry mixture. Bake at 325 degrees for one hour or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Run knife around edges of pan; immediately invert onto a serving plate. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream. Makes 8 servings.
You'll also find lots of clever, crafty tips in Taste of Autumn...
here's a sample!
Fashion a letter wreath from bittersweet clusters…a large one for the front door or make tiny placecards. Use bailing wire to create letter shapes, then wire bittersweet berry clusters to the form using floral wire.
Give a mirror or picture frame a new look in minutes. Use hot glue to secure colorful preserved leaves - real or silk ones from the craft store - around the edges. It'll be ready to show off in a snap!
To create a fragrant pumpkin, use an apple corer to carve out round vents in a hollowed-out pumpkin. Rub pumpkin pie spices or cinnamon on the underside of the pumpkin’s lid, or push cloves into it. Set a lighted tea-light candle inside. This will give off a wonderful scent for about 6 hours!
