In 2016, 98% of world production of cranberries resulted from the United States, Canada, and Chile. Most cranberries are processed into products such as juice, sauce, jam, and sweetened dried cranberries, with the remainder sold fresh to consumers. Cranberry sauce is a traditional accompaniment to turkey at Christmas dinner in the United Kingdom, and at Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners in the United States and Canada.[6] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cranberry

It is fun to go through my archives of recipe books that I have made  by writing recipes out of magazines.  I came across the recipe for Platte County Pie.  The recipe I use was out of  Bon Appetit, 1978, from the Frolics Restaurant in Kansas City, Missouri.

Butternut Squash, Chicken & Pecan Tart

Fall is in the air and  the coloring of the leaves is happening…    The beauty of the fall season is something to behold when the sun is shining.   I have been given a couple of butternut squash to enjoy in older recipes and create a couple of new ones.  This is back to a recipe I put up  in October 2014.  Still good!

Acorn and Butternut Squash

The  butternut squash beauty on the right was selected for the autumn tart.  The wonderful thing about this entree tart it is as tasty as  eating dessert.  In this  particular tart I used shredded chicken from chicken drumsticks previously cooked in the slow cooker.  Drumsticks were tried as a means of trying to be economical.  Chicken breasts are also very nice to use with this tart. Chicken was used this time as ham is not a part of this household’s diet anymore due to the high sodium and alas….extra fat.

Butternut Squash, Chicken & Pecan Tart

This make a wonderful tart with the ginger pastry.  It will fill a 11-12 inch tart pan giving it a thick filling.  This was a  perfect tart, it did not crumble when the tart pan rim was removed or crumble when it was cut.   Just add a green salad or vegetable with fruit for dessert and lunch is served.

2018 Version of the Tart:  I turned it into a 9-inch pie.  I cheated and bought a frozen pie crust.  I omitted the chicken, added just a little more squash, reduced the sugar some and proceeded as instructed.  Really had more filling than needed.  Baked the remainder in a small dish.
