I found this recipe on the The Pioneer Woman's blog. Since I love cranberries, I decided it would be perfect a Thanksgiving dessert. Before I could serve it to my whole family on turkey day, I decided to bake one and taste test it. The taste is devine.
Since I was meeting with my pastor and his wife today, I decided to serve some of it to them. They gave it thumbs up. Now that it's been tasted tested and approved, I'm definitely making it on Thanksgiving day.
If I had to give three reasons why I love this recipe, I would say 1)It is easy to assemble and get into the oven; 2)The taste is amazing; and 3)I've never had a pie made of cranberries so it's an unique recipe.
