Cranberry Tart Recipe

Prep time: 15 minutes Gluten-free cranberry tart
Cook time: 55 minutes
Serves: 8 people


  • 1 Silly Zak’s gluten-free pie shell
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons toasted and chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag fresh whole cranberries


  1. Remove the pie shell from the freezer and set aside to come to room temperature. (Follow directions on the package).
  2. Preheat your oven to 425°F.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the orange juice and cornstarch. Add the sugar and marmalade to the bowl and stir well to combine with the juice. Fold in the pecans, zest, and cranberries. Pour the tart filling into the pie shell.
  4. Place the assembled cranberry tart on a sheet pan to catch any spills. Bake at 425°F for 20 minutes. With the tart remaining in the oven, turn the temperature down to 350°F. Continue baking for an additional 35 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  5. Cool the tart on a wire rack until the filling sets up. You can refrigerate the tart, after it cools, until ready to serve.
  6. Cut into 8 wedges and serve either at room temperature or chilled.

    The directions do not say to defrost the pie crust first. Should I let it sit out or use it frozen? If it should defrost, how long should it sit out to be defrosted?

      Hi Kim,

      Defrost crust for 5 minutes, remove plastic. Fill and bake, cooking times and temperatures vary. Follow filling recipe.

      For a crispier crust: prick the base and sides with a fork, bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Fill and bake according to your recipe.

      For no-bake fillings: prick base and sides with a fork and bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool crust. Fill with recipe.
