      Very good, different recipe, with plenty flavors. Almond, cocoa, cranberry and orange... after all, could have been just a little too complex flavors for me. I was wondering how would cherries be in this recipe instead of cranberries, since I found cranberries slightly overpowering?

      the flavors of the almond filling and cranberry topping go perfectly together for a sweet/tart combination. i used a store bought pie shell, otherwise followed the recipe. very very tasty.
