Kate McDermott’s Cranberry Pie @KerrygoldUSA

kate's cranberry pie

You may be surprised to learn that Cranberry Pie is another way to enjoy this seasonal fruit other than traditional sauce or relish we find on many holiday tables. If you enjoy a fresh sour cherry pie in the summer, you will love this pie made with cranberries. I use them fresh in season, and also freeze them so I can use them year round. Add a handful of chopped walnut meats to these bright red orbs of delightful tartness, and a bit of orange liqueur to the filling or in a small glass to pair with the pie when it is served.
