Cranberry Orange Pie

It’s that time of year– the air is crisp, the leaves are turning color and the days are getting shorter. Autumn! I saw fresh cranberries in the produce isle at the grocery store, a sure sign of fall. In a moment of weakness, I bought two bags. (It said to buy two on the package, who am I to argue with the bag?!) What to do with them..

Jeff makes this pie every thanksgiving and it’s absolutely delicious. A fresh cranberry orange pie. It’s early for thanksgiving but what the hell. And by the way, the pie is half way gone already.
