This recipe is very good. However it turned out quite tart. The next time I make it I will use an additional 1/2 cup of white sugar so that it is sweeter. All in all it is a very festive and tasty pie. Read More

Very tart but good anyway. I used pecans instead of walnuts and it tasted good anyway. Sweeten it up by serving with ice cream or whipped cream. I also chopped the berries. Read More

Great change of pace!This was very popular with my Thanksgiving gang. I did take the recommendations of the other reviewers and added more sugar (1 1/4 c. total) and chopped the cranberries! Will make again! Read More

I made this pie as directed with two main changes. First I cut up an apple and mixed in with crushed cranberries. I used blender on pulse mode to crush them. some were still whole but that gives texture to pie. Secondly I used a trick taught to me years ago. I kept the streusel topping as directed in recipe but used the second crust to cut up into little squares. It helps if you have it frozen before cutting. Then mix the crust pieces into the streusel topping. Now pour over your cranberry-apple mix. You will be amased at the look and taste of your creation........ Thanks for a great base recipe Nils.

This cranberry pie was a hit for Thanksgiving! We loved the tartness and since we have a couple of diabetics - they were overjoyed with the lack of sugar. Those watching their weight loved the lack of butter! It was a hit and 3 people wanted the recipe. Read More

I did add about half of a large fuji apple to this. I really loved the flavor and texture of the cranberry mix. I think next time I will add oats to the topping to make it more crunchy. But my kids husband and I loved the flavor. Perfect for the holidays! Read More

This is a great looking pie. The food processor worked great for chopping the cranberries up. I also increased the sugar to one cup and used pecans in place of walnuts. It has a taste that I would say is a mix between a rhubarb and a cherry pie. Try it for a sweet tart taste. Read More

This is outstanding! My only issue was the strusel topping didn't turn out right the first time (it was dry and floury) because I think 1 tsp of shortening isn't nearly enough. The second time I used about 1.5 T of shortening and it was great. This was devoured at our pot luck and a nice change on cranberry recipes! Thx for sharing!! Read More

Mmmm! Took this to the office Thanksgiving potluck and was told it's "to die for". I increased the sugar in the filling to 1 1/4 cups as I like slightly sweeter desserts and will do it that way from now on. I had no difficulty smashing the cranberries using a potato masher in a large bowl. It took a little time but I had some and I had some frustration to burn off so it worked out well for me. The only other thing I changed was the walnuts -- didn't measure them. I probably used more like a cup. I wanted a little more topping as I was using my tart pan which is a little bigger than a pie plate. I liked the look of the picture posted with the recipe and wanted that extra WOW factor. The only other thing I want to say about this pie is that it's super simple to make and if you have cranberries in your freezer year-round like I do you can make it any time! Read More

I found it difficult to crush the cranberries very effectively. I recommend chopping them. Read More
