I don’t know who thought almond extract made sense in this recipe. It overpowers the fruit flavors. I’d recommend vanilla instead. The almond—which I normally love—is all wrong here. Without the almond—really nice!!

I love this pie! I made it for Thanksgiving a couple of years back, and actually made a cheddar cheese crust instead, and it really complimented the tartness of the fruit! I am definitely going to make it again, it is one of my favorites.

Made this pie for Thanksgiving this year and it was a big hit!! I increased the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and it was still a little tangy for me. I might try making it as a crisp, with a sweeter crust next time

If you like a tart fruit pie, you probably will enjoy this one, too. I made it into a "crisp" instead, to save time. The cranberries of course make it tart, but did not overpower the raspberries' flavor. I love raspberries, so I thought it was a delicious combination. Looks pretty, too. I recommend 1-1/2 c. sugar (for pleasantly tart), and I also added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Hubby thought it was good, a little tart, but said the sweet and crunchy crumb topping of the crisp was a nice combination with the tartness of the fruit filling. I thought it was quite good and next time I will make as a pie.
