    Easy and tasty. I served slices with whipped topping, also liked the addition of nuts. Thank You!

    This was my first time cooking with raw cranberries, but it won't be my last! Because we're not big fans of really tart foods, I chopped up the cranberries in my food processor (after chopping and removing my walnuts) to more evenly distribute the cranberry flavor throughout the dessert. I also used whole wheat pastry flour instead of the white flour, sucanat (dehydrated cane juice) instead of white sugar, and added a light sprinkling of freshly ground cloves to the batter at the end (a great complement to the almond extract!). I baked it in a cake pan, and it was ready in about 30 minutes. Wonderful result! The perfect fall dessert!

    This is a hit whenever I make it. The almond extract really makes it 'pop' compared to other desserts. Note, the batter is generally very stiff, especially when using frozen cranberries. This is normal and the dessert always turns out great!

    Easy, crunchy, and cranberry-y. This is very sweet - I think 8-10 servings might be more accurate. Using a pie pan, I had a little trouble with the edges (the thinner part) getting done much sooner. A straight-sided pan would work better.

    Yum! It's not really a pie but it was tasty all the same. I used a full bag of cranberries (12 oz, I think) and pecans instead of walnuts. I'll definitely make this again because it's easy and tastes great. It's important to serve this warm and to serve it with ice cream or whipped cream.

    This is the yummiest dessert ever. I was baking for very restricted diets, so I used a combo of gluten-free flours instead of regular flour, oil instead of butter, and vanilla instead of almond extract and it still turned out wonderfully!

    I love this recipe! I found it on another website about 5 years ago and have been making it for the holidays ever since. I use pecans or almonds instead of walnuts.
