    This recipe was delicious; not too sweet, not too tart. I think I did something wrong because mine was very, very liquid after the suggested cooking time (plus some), but even then it tasted magnificent. A couple of days later it had solidified a lot and was even better. Does anyone know what could have gone wrong? The cranberries just seemed to meld with the liquid mixture and create a soup-like filling...  -  10 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I normally don't like pecan pie because it's too sweet, but I made it because my husband likes it and the cranberries make it festive. The cranberries also add a tiny bit of tartness to the pie which was nice. It also added a little bit of color peaking out from between the pecans. Very pretty!  -  25 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this pie last year (2000) for Thanksgiving and got raves from almost 20 guests. Also many requests from the recipe. I can't wait to sink my teeth into it again this year. It has definitely become a part of our family Thanksgiving tradition.  -  07 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
