I have come to believe that Sue's recipes are all fabulous - not a one has failed me yet - and this pie certainly made me look GREAT today! I doubled up on the pie crust as I was making another blueberry cranberry pie. I loved this one in particular and the orange is the 'magic' in this recipe, although it does seem logical - I love making cranberry sauce with orange juice. I did add a touch of cinnamon too, as I love cinnamon with blueberries. Sue, another keeper.

I covered the edges with aluminum foil for 45 minutes so that would not burn. The crust came out flaky in the finished product. The filling mixture had just the right amount of sugar as not to completely take away the tartness of the cranberries. Loved the taste the orange gave the pie.

Oh yum! Made this for Thanksgiving and it was wonderful! The blueberries and cranberries balance each other nicely, not too sweet or too tart. Used Basic Pie Crust I and note, this calls for a 10-inch pie plate, it's a large pie. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

i didn't even make it right and it was gone in no time. i just was like oh, i guess i should use those cranberries and so i found 2 cups of blueberries and used a lot less sugar and a graham cracker crust and it was so good. it must be way better when you make it right. oh and putting the orange in the blender was the best part-- it made my day.

Okay...I'm going to confess...I licked my plate - even when other adults were watching. How could I not... my two favorite things baked into one pie! We used store bought crust. And we used orange zest and juice because I was lazy and didn't want to dig the blender out from the back of the cabinet. It was delicious. I love the consistancy and the tartness. We typically reduce the sugar in everything...but after reading the reviews I followed this one exactly and found the sugar perfect. I wish I'd have followed Charlottes suggestion and put foil on the edges - as they did get a bit too brown. This recipe is a definite keeper and next time I wont be so lazy and I'll try your crust too. Thank you.

I made this for Thanksgiving dinner's dessert. It was excellent!! I did use my own crust recipe and substituted 1 1/2 T. lemon juice for the orange, because I didn't have one. This is ure to be a holiday favorite from now on! Thank you!!

This sure is licking good pie. Interesting flavor combination with some orange thrown in. Crust is flaky and filling is tart. I would actually add some more sugar to filling and dont usually add sugar to recipes, vice versa. Some ice cream is must to go with this pie.

Great pie! The Children..the adults..we all licked our plates. Got lots of compliments on this pie at Thanksgiving and folks wishing I'd have made two of them. Got to say this pie not only tasted wonderful, but got lots of ooh & ahhs because it looked great too. The orange zest is a tasty addition. I may add slightly less sugar next time, but that's a personal preference..and there will be a next time! Thank you for a lovely recipe

All 6 of my kids devoured it! Very impressive. I did cheat and use storebought pie crusts though. This was my 1st home-made pie, and it was very easy, came out perfectly. My husband thought it was a bit too tart, but it still went over very well.
