Holiday recipe swap: cranberry and mixed berry pie
Can't decide what kind of pie to make for Thanksgiving? Why settle for one flavor? Try this winning combination of cranberries and mixed berries in one delicious pie.
I was torn between wanting to make an apple pie and wanting to make a cranberry pie. So I chose this lovely cranberry mixed berry pie recipe from the blog Belle Vie and did both at the same time.
I followed the recipe exactly except that for the top crust, instead of lattice work, I floated little leaves cut from pie dough.
