This surely is a delicious holiday pie. Instead of a pinch each cinnamon and nutmeg I added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg. The taste of combined spices and orange rind makes it almost perfect. May add some more cranberries and increase a little bit cooking time but will definitely bake it again. Read More

I prepared this pie for Christmas dinner. I used a homemade pie crust and followed the recipe with the addition of a few extra cranberries and walnuts. The inside had a consistency to that of pecan pie which wasn't my taste. I feel it drowned out the taste of the cranberries. I cooked it in the oven for over an hour. I didn't get many compliments on the taste of my pie by the guests. I prefer the taste of a Nantucket Cranberry pie to this. I won't make this again but thank you for the recipe. Read More

My husband adored this pie. Even though I'm not a big cranberry fan I thought the flavor and texture were exceptional. I did find however that I had to bake the pie for much longer than recommended in the recipe--nearly an hour and a half--for the filling to set. Read More

I use this recipe for tarts as opposed to pies (easier to eat) and have taken them to several gatherings where I have been asked by at least 7 people for the recipe. Thanks for sharing Sara. Read More

This was a great ending to a special dinner. The pie tasted like a sweet cranberry bread and had the consistency of a tollhouse cookie pie. Everyone loved it with whipped cream on top from my two year old to grandpa. Read More

This wasn't quite what I expected but it's very good. It's more like a sweet custard pie with a layer of cranberries. I used two cups of frozen cranberries for a stronger flavor. This is a great way to use up those cranberries. Read More

This was so tasty! I loved the combination of cranberries and orange zest. Yum! I actually made mini-pies out of this (lined muffin tins with pie crust added pie filling and baked for 35-40 minutes--watch it carefully in the last few minutes) and plan on baking a full size pie this afternoon. This recipe will be the first one I go to whenever I'm in charge of bringing a pie to something. Read More
