I made this yesterday. Cut the recipe to 1/4 (2 servings) and used all almond flour with baking powder plus the sliced almonds, and of course oil in place of butter. It is really good, though for my personal taste I will have to increase the splenda or s/f syrup a bit. Next time I may add some orange oil and peel to tweak a bit. Thanks Carolyn for a new way to use those cranberries.

Just wanted those people that have to be Gluten free that it would work with other "flours".

I made this yesterday too! I don't buy Carbquick, so I substituted with 1 scoop of whey protein powder, 2/3 c almond flour, 1/2 t baking powder, and 1/4 c flax meal.

And Deannie I used orange extract because I didn't have almond extract; it's very good!

I cut the pie into small squares and froze them (hope they freeze well!)... I plan on serving them with LC vanilla ice cream as an alternative to carby desserts on Christmas.

I'm making this AGAIN... this time for Christmas Eve dinner. It was soooo yummy that I think it is fit for non-low-carbers and they will never know the difference!

This sounds wonderful . I would like to add raspberries to it also.

I make a raspberry & cranberry sauce which is very good.

Made this over the weekend with Kevin's bake mix. Came out great! We like it warm with a dollop of whipped cream or a small scoop of l/c ice cream. I plan on buying several large bags of cranberries at Sams and freezing them. Never use to buy cranberries until this recipe and didn't realize they could only be found during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Thanks for another keeper Caroyln!

I used the original recipe. Used 1 cup of Kevin's bake mix for the flour. The only thing different was that I used chopped walnuts instead of almond slices. Very good recipe.

I just haven't mastered the art of posting pictures. I've read the posts and still no luck. Only have two pieces left right now anyways. I could forward a picture to someone if they wanted to post it for me.

I made this yesterday to "test" on visitors before the Holidays. It was a hit! Even my 4yo granddaughter asked for the cranberry "cake-pie" again tonight when she had several other very kid-friendly choices for her dessert.

I used Kevin's flour mix instead of CQ and slivered almonds in the filling. My only other tweek next time might be to add another 1/2 cup of berries.

Very, very good and definitely making again soon!

I made this and sprinkled about 1/2c of unsweetened coconut on the berries and almonds, my kids thought it tasted like Cherries! I suppose with the almond extract <I splashed heavily> it did. Loved it, nice and easy desert.

I was thinking the same thing. Thought it was a really new post until I looked at the dates. Soon as my oven is working (baking element out), I'm giving it a try. Thinking other fruits would also be nice (or my faux fruits from zucchini).

That's what I'm thinking too, Ouis, and what I will try it with. Never got around to it last year, nor the year it was first posted!

I have made this twice now and really like it. My changes:

Staying gluten free I used almond flour. However, because this is a sub for 1c. regular flour I use 2c. like the formula that (was it "chicken lady") gave.

Added the zest of one orange.

Vanilla instead of almond extract.

Added cinnamon and nutmeg.

Used chopped walnuts in place of almonds.

Combined all together and scooped into a 8" square once and a 10" deep pie plate once.
The batter was like a very thick cookie dough.... needed to spread out into the baking dishes. Reminded me a lot of cranberry bread in flavor and a nice moist coffee cake in texture.

Would like to try this using some of my frozen blueberries in place of cranberries. BTW, I did use frozen cranberries.

I made for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is delicious and everyone loved it. I used almond flour and liquid sucralose. So easy too.

I just posted a recipe VERY similar to this one that used oat fiber. It is a keeper for sure.

Made this for Easter with carbquik. Although it was good, I much prefer the almond flour version.
