Thanksgiving Pie Recipe

What!?! Who says you can only enjoy cranberries on Thanksgiving?

This pie is great year round because it uses frozen cranberries. You can find frozen cranberries in the frozen fruit section of your grocery store. I always buy several bags of fresh cranberries after the holidays and freeze them. {I love a good sale!}

If I haven’t talked you into trying a creamy cranberry dessert yet with my other recipes: Cranberry Ice Cream, or my Cranberry Smoothie.

Now is the time to try this Creamy Cranberry Pie Recipe! {I’m going to talk you into it sooner or later}

I’m joining a group of amazing bloggers to celebrate PI Day. I don’t know . . . something to do with math. Me celebrating anything math related is pretty ridiculous because math is at the very bottom of my skill set.

I was the kid that had all A’s and one D- . . . in Math. And that is because my teachers were being nice enough not to flunk me.

I found algebra to be completely aggravating and swore it was totally useless. Ahem teachers, I’m still waiting for that moment in life that algebra will be needed. It hasn’t happened yet.

Enough about my dislike of math. This is a celebration. For Pie!

This pie does have that extra tartness, especially when you bite into a whole cranberry. I personally love anything tart and tangy. If you like sweet with just a hint of tart, go extra heavy on the powdered sugar topping.

The tart cranberries, creamy filling, dollop of whipped cream and snow storm of powdered sugar on top . . . Pie Perfection.

    Hello–your creamy cranberry pie looks so good–couple questions..can this be made with fresh cranberries or are frozen/thawed ones what helps . along with the Greek yogurt, give the pie its’ zing???? Also, could this be made without a crust or in a graham cracker crust ?? we are not fans of pie crust…thanks so much !! this pie will be on our table at Thanksgiving ..and probably before …

    Reply

    • Creamy Cranberry Pie Recipe - WonkyWonderful (37)Nicole Harris says

      Hi Doris! I have only made this with frozen cranberries. I imagine fresh will work too, maybe with a little less cooking time. As far as the graham cracker crust. I’m not sure that will work because this pie does have to be baked for awhile. Maybe some sort of crumble topping? Enjoy!

    Did anyone try it with the fresh cranberries? If so, what modifications were needed? This looks delicious! I just really want to use fresh. Thanks!

    • Creamy Cranberry Pie Recipe - WonkyWonderful (39)Nicole Harris says

      Sorry, I have only made this recipe using frozen cranberries. I would imagine that the fresh cranberries would take a bit less baking time. But I can’t be 100% positive that there are no other changes necessary. Hopefully a reader makes this with fresh cranberries and reports back.

    This was a HUGE hit at our Thanksgiving Day event. It was delicious. I did use fresh cranberries and they worked out perfectly. I realize this is a year later than someone was asking about using fresh vs. frozen cranberries. But I just found your website and I was thrilled to stumble onto it – your recipes look divine. What beautiful photography:-) Thank you for sharing!!!
