Cranberry Pecan Piglets

Just finished making a double batch of cranberry/pecan “Piglets” for the book signing on Saturday! Piglets are one of my favorite recipes I like to bake this time of year…when I’m not slaving over a hot stove for hours making tomato soup & grilled cheese sandwiches! Hope there are some left by Saturday! YUMMO!

2 Cups Fresh Cranberries
3 1/2 Cups Chopped Pecans

2 eggs
3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
