Mom's Famous Cranberry PieMy Mom started baking this cranberry pie when I was young and it has been a long time family favorite. When I moved out on my own, I made sure to get the recipe so that Jason and I could enjoy it at our house. We usually have it around the holidays when fresh cranberries are available, but frozen berries are also tasty and they make it possible to enjoy this pie as a splurge any time of year.
