I first prepared this pie at Thanksgiving to share with my co-workers. It was such a success! Now I freeze cranberries while they are in season so that I can make it year-round. -Dawn Liet Hartman Mifflinburg, Pennsylvania

What a great balance of sweet and tart with the cranberries. Definitely will be a keeper recipe.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2012

In my tiny apartment with time at a premium, I had to use pre-made pie dough, which is disappointing because the recipe looks interesting. Even so, I got raves & requests for more at Thanksgiving. The cranberries really tone down the cloying sweetness of a traditional pecan pie. I came back to the recipe now because I'm going to use it as the topping for bar cookies this Chirstmas.

I love, love, love this pie. Couple of times it did not "set up" and I don't know why. But the last few attempts have turned out wonderful. It is delicious and I could eat the whole thing if I could handle the guilt.

This pie was delicious. Everyone who eats pecan pie seems to enjoy this one. The cranberries balance the richness of this super sweet holiday tradition.
