I brought these to a party and everyone loved them. I made the crust as directed, substituting walnuts for pecans. I wanted a bright red filling made from fresh cranberries, so I cooked some with sugar and a bit of orange juice, and used that as a filling in place of the sour cream/ dried cranberry mixture. They were delicious and easy. TIp: cut while still warm.

This recipe is delicious! Although it says to serve it after chilling for two hours, we tried it after cooling for about an hour. It was yummy warm. Later, when we tried it after regrigerating, it was also scrumptious. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves cranberries and/or dessert.
