I ate half the pie and gave my family the rest! This is the best pie I have ever had. The only changes I made: substituted the all purpose flour for whole wheat flour, 1/3 c sugar for 1/3 c honey, added 1 granny smith apple and added 1TBS butter...FANTASTICO!!!! Next I'm gonna try it with whole grain pie crusts.

This is a fabulous tasting pie. The cranberries were just perfect in it. The sweetness was right on. Thanks for posting this lovely pie.

Beautiful! Simple, quick, and very easy to prepare! Yummy too! I can't account for the crust, as I made a different one, but the filling, and the "rustic" folding technique was so great! Now I don't have to try to dig it out of a pie pan! Thanks for sharing :)

March 9, 2008: Beautiful pie! Not only did it look pretty, but it tastes delicious. I used all granny smith apples & they were a little al dente but that's the reason I use them exclusively. The cranberries added a nice tartness as well as color. I think the biggest surprise was the crust. It was easy to work with, easy to fill & fold but most importantly, it just melts in your mouth. I love pies, but usually only make single crust & dutch crumb topped ones. DH will eat pies any time, but he NEVER eats the crusts. I had him try a bite of this one just to test & he ate the whole thing saying that it's the very best pie he's ever eaten. Even my picky toddler ate every part of the pie, including the cranberries. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe - I'll be using it often. Made for US Regional Alphabet Tag - March 2008 UPDATE: I have made this pie several times now. It's always super easy & everyone loves it. I've been wanting to post new photos that do this recipe justice. I liked how these new ones turned out & I hope you agree, Vino Girl! :)
