Cake: • 1 ¾ cups all purpose flour • 2 teaspoons baking powder • ½ teaspoon salt • ½ cup soft butter • 1 ½ cups white granulated sugar • 3 large eggs • 2 Tbsp lemon zest • ½ cup sour cream or greek yogurt • ¼ cup of milk

For the filling and topping: • Heaping ½ cup frozen cranberries, fully thawed • 3 tbsp. sugar • 1⁄4 cup chopped pistachios • Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting (optional) Directions Preheat your oven to 350F and butter a 9-inch tart pan generously. Make the crust: In a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Scrape down the bowl, then beat in the egg yolk. Combine the flour and salt, then add to the bowl, beating on low speed until just incor- porated. Press the dough into the bottom and sides of the prepared tart pan. Dock the dough thoroughly with a fork. Place the tart pan on a baking sheet; freeze for 10 minutes or until firm. Add the frangipane to the center of the tart crust and spread to evenly fill all the way to the edges. Mix the thawed cranberries with the sugar; toss well. Place the cranberries in a single layer, leaving a little room between the berries. Discard any excess sugar or juices from the bowl. Bake the tart in the preheated oven until the top is lightly browned, about 35 minutes.Re- move the tart and let cool for 5 minutes, then carefully transfer to a rack to cool completely. Just before slicing, unmold the tart,sprinkle with pistachios, and dust with confectioners’ sugar if desired.

Directions Generously butter the bottom and sides of a 9 x 13 inch pan and preheat your oven to 350F. Make the topping: In a small saucepan, place the ¼ cup of butter and the ¾ cups of packed brown sugar. Cook over medium heat while stirring until the sugar dissolves. Once the mixture comes to a rolling simmer, cook another 15 seconds. Pour the cooked sugar mixture into the prepared pan and top with cranberries in an even layer. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter until light. Add the sugar and beat together the sugar and butter until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in the lemon zest and sour cream and the milk and mix until smooth, then fold in the flour mixture. Pour batter over the cranberries in the cake pan, and smooth the surface. Place in the preheated oven and bake until a tester comes out with just a few moist crumbs, and pressing down on the surface bounces back, about 45-50 minutes.Cool the cake in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes, then carefully invert onto your serving plate.
