2 tablespoons milk

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1 cup Ocean Spray® Fresh or Frozen Cranberries, chopped

2 tablespoons chopped green onions

Heat oven to 450°F.

Prepare pie crust as directed on package for one-crust baked shell using a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Trim excess pie crust even with top of pan.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until filling is set. Let stand 30 minutes before serving. Cut into wedges. If desired, garnish with additional green onions. Store covered in refrigerator.
