If you have never heard of a cranberry pie you're probably not alone. I, at least, hadn't heard of such a thing, and certainly wouldn't have guessed it would be so yummy. Yeah...I would have guessed wrong. This pie is so delicious! I'm talking "WOW" delicious, as in "go back for thirds" delicious. It is absolutely, positivity, scrumptious. To me, it is more like a cobbler than a pie, but no matter what you call it, it is yummy!
