This flavor of this pie is similar to that of a tart cherry pie. The brown sugar soothes some of the tang of the cranberries. The nuts add a nice texture to the pie. I served this warm with a scoop of French Vanilla ice cream. Yum! I will definately be adding this to my holiday dessert list.
We love love this simple, yet fancy dessert using fresh cranberries. I have been following this recipe exactly as provided and get requests to share the recipe by many. I always stock up on fresh cranberries during the holidays so I can make this pie all year long.! Excellent !
I grated an orange peel into the topping to add more flavor, not that it needs it. I've made this three times in the last month as people keep requesting it.
This was a really good pie. I used a regular size pie crust and should have used a deep dish. I couldn't fit all the cranberries in but it turned out wonderfully. I took it to a Christmas potluck and it was the first item to disappear. Thanks for the recipe.
I really wanted to adore this pie. I love cranberries and couldn't wait to try it. However, I found it possibly needs something done differently in order to make the brown sugar mixture adhere to the cranberries. I found that the berries all floated to the top of the pie while the brown sugar and nut mixture sank to the bottom and formed a sweet sugar layer. Extremely tart top/extremely sweet bottom. I have most of the pie left over. I just cut a slice of it and cut it into pieces and mix it up and its good, so I think perhaps coating the berries in egg white or something before mixing with the sugar might make for a better blend of ingredients. My grandson, at 21 months, couldn't get enough of the pie. I will try it again with some changes because I think this could be excellent.
