Cranberry Cheesecake Pie

 

Cranberry Cheesecake Pie
 
It may sound like an unusual combination, but just imagine...
the tartness of the cranberries and the sweetness of cheesecake all in a wonderfully delicious pie.

I put a Pillsbury pie crust 
(this was my test pie to see if it would make it's way onto the Thanksgiving table.
 Yes it will be on the dessert table, with a homemade crust :) 
into my pie plate after I rolled it a bit, fluted the edge then,
 placed 2 room temperature packages of cream cheese 
along with 1 cup sour cream
 into a blender along with
 1/2 a bag of fresh cranberries, 3/4 cups sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 4 teaspoons flour.
 Blended until the cranberries were smooth, then added three eggs and gave a quick pulse until all was incorporated. 
Once it was poured into the pie shell, I placed the other half bag of cranberries on top.
 
I baked it at 325 for 45 minutes. 
It then looked like the photo above, the center was a little set, but still wiggled.
I turned off the oven and let it sit in there for another hour.
 
It was DELICIOUS,
Who knew? I was very surprised as I typically only prefer plain cheesecake. I do sometimes like it topped with blueberries, but most times I like it plain.
 
The cranberries were the perfect item to put into my unusual pie.
I like it served chilled.
