Cranberry & Fig Pie

I love the tartness of cranberries, so when I tasted this pie and thought it too sweet, I decided not to post the recipe.  John, on the other hand loved it and ate every last piece. So, on his recommendation, I am sharing it.
I substituted chopped fresh figs for the raisins 

Cranberry and Fig Pie
recipe source

1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water
2 cups cranberries
1 cup raisins
1 tablespoon butter
1 (8-inch) unbaked pie shell, with extra for lattice strips. (I used this recipe for a 9-inch TWO crust)


1) Preheat oven to 450°F.

2) Combine sugar and cornstarch in a medium pot; whisk well. Add water and bring to a boil over high heat, whisking constantly. Cook until mixture thickens, stirring, about 5 minutes.

3) Add cranberries, raisins, and butter; cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4) Pour cranberry mixture into prepared pie shell. Bake 35 minutes, until crust is golden and filling is bubbly. Cool 15 minutes before serving.

Serve with Vanilla Ice-Cream, if desired

I love cranberries, I love figs. This has to be good. What a perfect lattice top, too! Beautiful photos. My fig tree had loads of figs, most didn't ripen, the ones that did had no taste! :( xo

Wow, this is one photogenic pie! Beautiful! I love the idea of a fresh cranberry pie, but I've never made one. I think you're recipe has convinced me that it's time!! Thanks for sharing even if you thought it was a little too sweet. :)
