cup sugar
2
tablespoons all-purpose flour
1
egg, lightly beaten
1
tablespoon sugar
1/4
cup caramel-flavored ice cream topping
 
Sliced kumquats and sage leaves (optional)

Directions

  1. Prepare Butter Pastry.
  2. In saucepan combine cranberries, orange peel, orange juice, raisins, and dried cranberries; bring to boiling over medium heat. Cook, uncovered, 3 minutes. In bowl combine sugar and flour; add to saucepan. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly; cook 1 minute more. Remove from heat.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Divide pastry into 8 portions. On lightly floured surface roll four of the portions into 7-inch circles and four into 6-inch circles. Line four 4-3/8- to 5-inch foil or metal tart pans with the 7-inch circles; trim pastry even with rim.

Press strips into bottom pastry rim. Seal and crimp edge; if desired. Brush with egg and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.

To serve, stir 1/4 cup caramel-flavored ice cream topping into reserved filling. Use to top pies; add sliced kumquats and sage leaves, if desired. Makes 4 pies, 2 servings per pie.
