Aunt Betty's Mock Cherry Pie

Here in New England, where cranberries are more plentiful (and less expensive) than cherries, my dear sister-in-law would make this pie every year. We lost her a few years ago, but will always remember her warm and loving personality through her recipes.

This is a lovely pie. Actually, I mixed the cranberries and rasins together and left them whole. Next time I think I'll use almond extract. There will definately be a next time.
