Cranberry Delight Pie

While I find many of the recipes in these old books entertaining, there are many more that I'd like to actually try. Here's one on that list. I love cranberries, and have been tweaking several of my own cranberry recipes lately, so this one caught my attention.

Cranberry Delight Pie
Perfect for any holiday party.
8" Baked Pie Shell
1/2 lb. marshmallows
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup ground fresh cranberries (2 to 2 1/2 cups unground)
1 tbsp. grated orange rind
1 cup whipping cream, whipped

Place marshmallows and milk in top of double boiler; heat over hot water until marshmallows melt. Then chill until the consistency of thick whipped ream. Drain excess juice off cranberries until quite dry. Fold in cranberries and orange rind. Chill until thick (almost holds shape when spatula is drawn through). Fold in whipped cream. Pour into cooled pie shell. Chill until set (about 2 hr.). Remove from refrigerator 20 min. before serving.
