More like a cake than a pie, this cranberry nut pie is packed with fresh, tart cranberries and crunchy nuts.

    This pie is fabulous! There is NEVER a drop left and all plates are licked clean! People constantly ask for the recipe and it is best served warm with vanilla ice cream. The almond extract is the key! Great for book clubs, brunches, and dinner parties! ENJOY! It’s a real hit!

    Everyone loved this “pie”. I couldn’t find fresh cranberries so I used a combination of dried, unsweetened cranberries and frozen blueberries. Delicious.

    Tried it a couple of weeks before T-day and loved it. Made it for T-day and future son-in-law was sketical beforehand but loved it once he tried it, daughter copied the recipe to take with her.

    This takes basic ingredients, assembles quickly and can be eaten right out of the oven or cold. It is delicious and will travel well, as it isn’t soupy or juicy. It is very moist and has incredible flavor.
