If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. It is a fabulous special pie; the combination of flavours is superb. I made it for Christmas eve supper and it was a total hit with the family. It was so good everyone thought we should make it a tradition to have for our family Christmas eve get together. The only thing I had to do different from the recipe was to use water chestnuts rather than regular chestnuts which were not available, even so they gave it a nice crunch. I also may have made the crust just a little too short but it did hold together and cut very nicely; pretty as FT's picture. Thanks sooo much for this wonderful wonderful recipe which I know will be made for many future Christmas Eves, maybe even for other occasions too!!

Took a long time to make, however this pie was the highlight of our holiday table, we all thought the flavor and color of the fruit was impressive. we used craisins and canned chestnuts. I saved lots of your recipes and this was a holiday hit, thanks for the unusual and tasty pie, i love pies and this delivered on taste and looks. next time we make it we may try turkey meat and some ham. Thanks for a great recipe.

Looked impressive. Was enjoyed by all on Christmas Eve. If I were to make again I would omit the cranberries.

I made this for a brunch. Everyone liked the diverse flavor. I also had to use water chesnuts (like Derf) because they were not available. Thank you for the post. And... your title is so cute.

This was really good. The chestnuts were the best part, and I loved the orange and lemon flavors. Made it taste very special-occasion-y.

This looked so good but turned out so terrible. The cranberries were fresh, so not sweet. I think they made the entire pie taste tart. The sausage tasted strange as well. It was such a disappointment to spend so much time and money on a special holiday dish that went wrong.
