Cranberry Raisin Pie

Yield: Makes one 9” pie


  • Pastry for a standard 9” two-crust, lattice-top pie
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 3 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons butter


1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Have a pastry-lined pie dish and pastry strips for creating a lattice top ready.

2. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, combine sugar, flour, salt and water and bring to a boil, stirring often.

3. Reduce heat to medium. Stir in cranberries and raisins. Allow to cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until a few cranberries begin to pop.

4. Remove from heat. Stir in the butter and cool for about 5 minutes.

5. Pour into pastry-lined dish; top with lattice crust.

6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until crust is nicely browned and the filling bubbles slightly in the center. Serve slightly warm or room temperature, on its own or with a big blog of whipped cream.
