Whether you make your own pie crust or buy a frozen one at the grocery store ... you must try this tart! If you like cranberries like I do, the sweet pears only enhance the cranberries ... this is a tough one to pass by without eating a piece! So good with a nice cup of hot coffee - even for breakfast.
