In the words of my favorite chef, Ina Garten, "How easy is that?!" Baking it for this long will leave the middle slightly moist so that when you reheat in the oven you won't over bake the torte. I recommend zapping a piece in the microwave for 30 seconds or reheating the torte at 325 for 15 minutes whenever your ready to nosh on this little slice of heaven.

This Cranberry Christmas Torte is perfect to bring as a gift to your host or to compliment your family's savory breakfast dishes. Whomever you share this special treat with will be so glad you did!

Merry Christmas Eve to all of you!
