"This is one of my "go-to" desserts in the winter. I buy a few bags of cranberries when they are on sale and throw them in the freezer. I do the same with sliced almonds. I can mix this up at a moments notice! It's tart/sweet flavor is a family favorite!"

"I made this recipe to bring for dessert for Christmas dinner at my friends. It was a big hit! The best thing is how simple it is to make. I didn't have a tart pan so I just used a 9" pie plate, greased well. It was delicious!"

"Very forgiving, even when you're distracted while making the recipe and add the butter to the fruit. I don't own a take-apart pan and it's not necessary to make this, either. A glass pie pan will do. The almond flavour is great, but if you're out of it, I'm sure that orange or lemon peel or essence would complement the cranberries nicely. It is also a good base recipe to use with other berries in season, such as blueberries."

"I did modify the recipe a bit to meet our personal tastes. I substituted orange extract for the almond and chopped pecans for the almonds. The end result was delicious. Can't ask for much more - a wonderful dessert that is almost effortless."
