My mom is a wonderful person and she insists that we don't bring anything to my family's very intimate, little Thanksgiving party. She would rather work for a few days and make everything herself so we can just relax and enjoy ourselves. Moms are the best. But - I can't show up empty-handed, so I will be bringing this very simple and very yummy Cranberry Pie. If you are not sure what to bring, this is always a hit - especially if you like the tartness of cranberries.

1 1/2 C fresh Cranberries
1/4 C Brown Sugar
3/4 C chopped Pecans or Walnuts (or mix!)
1/2 C Sugar
1/2 C Flour
1/3 C Butter or Margarine, melted
*You can use a pre-made pie crust if you want it to be more traditionally pie-like, but I usually put it all straight into a pie pan.
Preheat oven to 325. Grease a 9" pie pan. Layer cranberries on bottom of pie plate. Sprinkle with brown sugar and nuts. Beat egg in a medium mixing bowl until thick. Gradually add sugar, beating until thoroughly blended. Stir in flour and melted butter. Blend well. Pour mixture over cranberries. Bake 45 minutes.
That's it. So easy and soooo good!
