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.

10 Reviews for Cranberry Meringue Pie


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.

Beautiful presentation
Amazing-And Easy

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!

Easy to follow instructions
a new thanksgiving staple!

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)

not too complicated, few ingredients, awesome flavor
Best Thing I Ever Made for Thanksgiving

I LOVE this pie: easy, pretty, each component stand-alone good, but all together they are GREAT! Five Stars all the way.

Easy, LOVE, love, LOVE the crust...will use again & again

I used a regular pie crust and I a smaller pie plate otherwise a great pie.

Filling and topping great

Once again a misleading photo

Once again a misleading photo with this recipe. The recipe states 10 servings from this pie. The piece of pie in the photo is at least 1/6 if not 1/5 of an average pie plate; by the way who on earth cuts a pie into 10 pieces? Very deceptive calorie count.
