Obviously I didn't make this during the winter holidays, but that certainly didn't detract from serving this WONDERFUL PIE! Absolutely loved the cranberry/raisin combo & with the pears it was all outstanding! I'll be making this one again, for sure, probably several times more before the end of the year, when I can, at last, do the partridge thing with the crust! Thanks so much for posting this great keeper! [Made & reviewed as your prize for winning in the recent Tic-Tac-Toe event]
