    This was as good as the picture! I love cranberries and this did not disappoint. My sons topped theirs with vanilla ice cream. DH and I ate it as is and felt it didn't need any embellishments. Thanks for posting.

    We enjoyed this dish -- it was quite unique and different from other cobbler-type dishes I have made in the past. I am not sure if I made the recipe correctly; however, it did turn out just fine. The texture of the dish is much different than I am accustomed to, but we enjoyed the change. Made for the 1-2-3 tag, December, 2011.

    Really wasn't sure what I was doing tagging this recipe EXCEPT that I love cranberries, so... Anyway, this recipe came together so easily & the result, very tasty! A nice, & different approach to pie & cobbler! I topped this liberally with homemade apricot preserves! Really OUTSTANDING! [Tagged, made & reviewed in March Beverage Tag]

    This was delicious, and so easy to put together. I made half the recipe in a large small individual pie tin (if that makes sense) and subbed splenda for the sugar.
