    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1 small navel orange, peeled, sectioned and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pastry for double-crust pie
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Additional sugar
  • ORANGE CREAM:
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange extract, optional

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 450°. Toss together first 8 ingredients.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll 1 half of dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim crust even with rim. Add filling.
  • Roll remaining dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; cut into strips. Arrange over filling in a lattice pattern. Trim and seal strips to edge of bottom crust; flute edge. Brush lattice with egg; sprinkle with additional sugar.
  • Bake 10 minutes. Reduce oven setting to 350°; bake until golden brown, 40-45 minutes, covering edges with foil if crust is getting too dark. Cool completely on a wire rack; refrigerate until serving.
  • Meanwhile, beat whipping cream until it begins to thicken. Add remaining ingredients; beat until soft peaks form. Refrigerate until serving. Serve with pie.
Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches): Mix 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1/2 tsp. salt; cut in 1 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 1/3 to 2/3 cup ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; cover and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.

    I really like the pie and I'm generally not a pie person. If you like cranberry orange - you will like it. Not wild about the orange flavoured whipped cream. I think it's better with just sweetened vanilla whipped cream.

    Made this today! Love it but next time will add a little more sugar. Pie was a little too tart. Planning on it for Thanksgiving dinner.

    I tried this recipe for Thanksgiving. It was a huge hit & an immediate family favorite.

    The recipe does not give you directions so I continued the top 8 ingredients and put them all in the pie crust.. I did not do anything with the egg... I suppose it was for the egg wash for the crust. I didn't use it.. I baked the pie according to directions. It smelled wonderful coming out of the oven.I will be making this again next year. It was delicious. I loved the tartness with the sweetness and the texture hat he the orange gave to the pie.I did not make the orange whipped cream... I just used a little whipped topping..
