A combination of sweet and tart, this cranberry and mixed berry pie, is easy to put together, tasty, and sure to please.

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.
