Twist on Orange Cranberry Relish

Orange Cranberry (or Cranberry Orange) relish has become a very popular dish at the holiday table and this recipe takes the best flavors of that dish and turns them into a dreamy creamy dessert.

This pie is so flavorful and creamy

Creamy Fresh Tart Flavor

This dish has a creamy fresh tart flavor that making it a well talked about dessert at the holiday table. 

The added fresh orange juice I think makes all the difference and adds to the fresh taste of this pie. 

The layers of cranberry give not only a great taste but a colorful addition to the pie itself.

Love the layers of cranberries in throughout the pie

Cranberry Orange Pie

If you want more cranberry than orange in your pie, try making this same recipe with cranberry jello.

Personally, I like the more Orange than cranberry taste

Cranberry jello is often a seasonal item, so it might be difficult to find at your local supermarket. However, if you are lucky enough to come across it, give it a try. 

The extra cranberry will give the pie a more tart flavor and a berry color. 

However you choose to make this pie, if you do so, I’d love to hear in the comments below how yours turned out.
