A simple pie topping created with toasted almonds, tart cranberries, and your favorite cookie
Ingredients
  • ½ cup pecans
  • 4 ounces frozen cranberries
  • 1 (2.3-ounce) package amaretto cookies (about 12) or (if your store doesn't carry those, like mine) Vanilla Wafers (about 12)
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Put the pecans on a baking sheet and bake them for 10 minutes to toast them.
  2. Remove them from the oven and let them cool.
  3. Thaw the cranberries in a strainer set over a bowl to catch the liquid.
  4. Put the cookies, pecans, and cranberries into a food processor and pulse them a few times until they are coarsely chopped.
  5. Sprinkle the topping evenly over your pie and serve immediately.
  6. Refrigerate leftovers.
