Cranberry Cream Pie
Post by April on Oct 29th, 2003, 08:22am

3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
2 cup cranberries
1 Pastry Shell, baked (9 inches)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla (c'mon--the real stuff, not imitation)
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
6 ounces cream cheese, softened (the other 2 0z in the package makes a
fine sandwich with cucumbers or black olives)

In a saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and water until smooth. Add cranberries. Bring to boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Reduce heat; cook until berries pop, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Fold in whipped cream. Spread evenly into pie shell. Top with cranberry mixture. Chill for at least 4 hours. Store in refrigerator. Top with a glop of whipped cream.
