I made this twice and both times it was gone in a day. I did change some things both time I made it 1. used 1/4 almond extract & 3/4 vanilla 2. added 1/2 tsp cinnamon & 1/4 tsp ground clove to the batter 3. made the streusel topping w/ 1/2 tsp cinnamon(from earlier reviewer).
One version was with walnuts, second was with sliced almonds. Both were good, not to sweet or tart, but the almond version was much better.
I made this twice, first with fresh cranberries, and it was odd in a very good way, and the second time I made it with frozen cranberries and it was a disaster. First, the cranberries unmelted my butter, and I had to microwave the whole thing, which didn't work too well. Then it wouldn't bake. When I took it out it was cooked on the top, but mushy in the middle. I put it in for another 15 minutes, with no change in the results.
This is the best cranberry dish I've ever made. I made it with a brown sugar/walnut topping (1/4 cup walnuts, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons flour mixed together), which definitely helped it, although it'd be good without the topping as well. I actually like it better cold than warm, but I generally like pies cold.
Oh wow!! What a sweet surprise!! This was SO GOOD! It was yummy cranberry goodness surrounded by a tasty, tasty cake-thing. I would describe the texture of the "cake" as a cross between a cake and a brownie (non-chocolate, of course). I think the almond flavoring really ties it all together, and the nuts are essential too. As I usually do, I used 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour in place of the white. My husband was really blown away by this; he wasn't looking forward to "cranberry pie" but said it was one of the best things he's ever had!
I searched for this recipe since I had lost mine. I love it! It is easier to make, however, if you just put the cranberries and nuts in the prepared pan and pour the batter over them. Glad I found your website and this recipe again.
PROS: A mix and dump pie that makes its own crust, nothing could be easier. Without exception, everyone liked it - even those picky eaters who wouldn't touch my homemade Cranberry Chutney - and some took home a piece for later. CONS: The 1 tea. of almond extract would have been overpowering for my taste. I took the suggestion of another reviewer and used 1/4 tea. of almond extract and 3/4 tea. of vanilla. That was perfect with enough of an almond taste that other bakers could identify it in the pie. SUGGESTION: After you pat the mixture in the pan, take a handful or so of cranberries and scatter them on top, pushing them gently about half way into the batter. Some will burst and run while cooking, giving the pie a more festive presentation with more red on top in lieu of a lot of the white batter showing on top.
I love this recipe and you can make it in an 8x8" square pan without altering anything. I used 100% whole wheat pastry flour and I added a streusle topping, before baking. Enjoy!
Love this pie! Totally different from anything that I have ever made/eaten! Beautiful presentation with the contrast of red & white. I even lowered the calories by using half splenda for the sugar, and it was delicious. I plan to try this with blueberries - may add a little lemon zest with this version. Thanks for the recipe!
