A cranberry pie is a unique way to include traditional cranberries at the Thanksgiving or Christmas meal. This is a two-crust pie, with the top crust done in a lattice or criss-cross design. Making the pie pastry from scratch will increase the preparation time.

DIRECTIONS

Combine sugar, cinnamon, flour, and salt. Add water; mix well. Add cranberries. Cook slowly until skins pop open, stirring occasionally. Add orange peel and butter or margarine. Line 9-inch pie pan, using half the pastry. Roll out remaining pastry; cut in strips 1/2 inch wide. Pour fruit mixture in pie pan. Make crisscross pattern over top with pastry strips. Seal edges; trim and flute. Bake at 400° for 40 to 45 minutes.
