Over the last couple of weeks, doing events and radio shows with ONE GOOD DEED (the book), I’ve been reading the story about the now-famed Cranberry Surprise Pie. And every day, when I look at the stats for this blog, a whole mess of people have been checking out the recipe. So if it’s your first time or now an annual favorite for you, here’s our family’s favorite Thanksgiving dessert. Don’t forget the vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. And most of all, Happy Thanksgiving, from my family to yours.
