First off, I've never made a meringue before and was surprised how easy it was. The pie was very easy to make and has a lovely color. Some of my family said it was too sweet, however, I feel it has a nice sweetness and tart to it. I got compliments on the crust. My favorite part was the meringue. It was sweet, light, and slightly crispy on the browned peaks.
Cranberry Meringue Pie

If you’re a fan of lemon meringue pie, you’ll love this festive cranberry meringue pie recipe. For the fluffiest meringue, set your eggs out at room temperature for about 15 minutes or submerge (in the shell) in a bowl of lukewarm water for 5 minutes before beating—egg whites at room temperature will gain more volume than cold whites.

This pie was amazing. I don't generally bake but when seeing the picture in the magazine, I had to try it.
It came out looking exactly like the picture and the taste was amazing! This is definitely a keeper of a recipe, even for a guy who doesn't bake!
i made this for thanksgiving this year. it was a definite hit. the oldest of guests loved it, but so did my 3 year old son. in fact, i also made a decadent peanut butter and chocolate pie and there are still leftovers of that one. this one didn't make it past black friday because everyone loved it so much. i'm not new to baking, but i'm also not a professional. the meringue is much more intimidating in theory than in execution. MAKE THIS PIE!!! (i'm making another one today)
I LOVE this pie: easy, pretty, each component stand-alone good, but all together they are GREAT! Five Stars all the way.
I used a regular pie crust and I a smaller pie plate otherwise a great pie.
