Here’s a wonderful dessert for Christmas or Thanksgiving. With ruby-red color and a golden lattice crust, this pie looks as good as it tastes. —Diane Everett, Dunkirk, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 package (12 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed

Recipe Note

Test Kitchen tips

  • Give your pie a little sparkle by sprinkling coarse sugar on the top crust before baking. To help it stick, brush it with beaten egg first.
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches): Combine 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1/2 tsp. salt; cut in 1 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 1/3 to 2/3 cup ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Divide dough in half and shape into disks; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.

    "WOW! Great pie and the flavors blend beautiful! I made this for Easter dinner (had cranberries frozen from December). You definitely want to use "brown" sugar and not white. Would recommend this pie highly!"
