hi all! i'm making 3 or 4 pies today and gettingome ribs tonight. my question is i'm making this today and have to run to store for dried cranberries, or can i use cranberry sauce? cranberries are not something i see often here. we can buy fresh...i've never seen dried cranberries. another question...i'm making a chocolate chess pie and pumpkin ...i'm thinking to go ahead and bake them and warm up them up bird-day. your thoughts?

Dried cranberries join Granny Smith apples in this fall pie perfect for Thanksgiving.

gderr...your store probably has "Craisins"...they are cranberry flavored raisins...will be with the raisins in the store.

...or if your store has a bulk foods section, actual dried cranberries can usually be found there. Sounds wonderful!

crasins sound excellent! great suggestion!

Craisins are cranberries that have been sweetened and dried. The pumpkin and chess pies can be made and frozen but most likely will have soft or soggy crusts. Pumpkin pie needs to be kept refrigerated and will be safe to eat for 3 days. The apple cranberry pie can be frozen unbaked if you like.

Ocean Spray makes Craisins, which are dry cranberries. I don't think i would sub

Yeah, Crasins aren't rasins, they are cranberries. You may be able to find them also in the natural or bulk food section in your store. If they aren't the brand name typically I see them in a large bin next to the nuts and trail mixes.

Marie, pumpkin pies aren't refrigerated here....they sell them out on the tables with the fruit pies. I don't buy store-bought anyway, but isn't that odd? And I'm talking about major grocery stores doing this, not sure about "real" bakeries.

Commercial bakeries are probably using shelf stable products that are not available to us. That is also why commercial pastries with cream cheese fillings are shelf stable but homemade cream cheese fillings or frostings need to be refrigerated.

I plan on doing the same thing gderr. I have to work the night before until 2:15am and go back to work at 8:45pm Thanksgiving Day so I plan on baking my desserts tomorrow and freezing them until Thanksgiving. I told my mom that we can warm them up before serving.
