Reviews forCranberry Pecan Pie
"used my regular crust as had some in the freezer. didnt quite set up as well as would have liked but didnt look like it should bake too much longer. great taste will make again"
"Very sweet. But good"
"I thought this sounded mighty good and I was right! It was a hit with the family at Easter. I asked everyone to rate it and they all gave it the highest. I used light corn syrup but I want to try dark next time. I would probably put more pecans in it. I also thawed fresh cranberries that I had frozen previously. They worked great. I whipped fresh cream and put it on the top. You can't lose with that!"
"This is my favorite recipe for pecan pie! I like dark corn syrup, but light would be fine too"
"Can I please just ask....did people use light or dark corn syrup?Adding a 5 star rating because it sounds divine."
"What a great balance of sweet and tart with the cranberries. Definitely will be a keeper recipe."
"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."
"Have make several times. Is always the first to be eaten."
