Cranberry Cheesecake Pie

Cranberry Cheesecake Pie @createdbydiane
This recipe is the perfect combination of a classic cheesecake with a DELICIOUS kick of cranberries.
Perfect for ANY Holiday
Cranberry Cheesecake Pie from @createdbydiane #pie #cranberry #Thanksgiving
It may sound like an unusual combination, but just imagine…
the tartness of the cranberries and the sweetness of cheesecake all in a wonderfully delicious pie.
I just love how pretty pink it turned out.
It was DELICIOUS, I was very surprised as I typically only prefer plain cheesecake. I do sometimes like it topped with blueberries, but most times I like it plain.
The cranberries were the perfect item to put into my unusual pie.

    Looks yummy. Are the whole cranberries on top the other half of the bag? Did you add them in the beginning or after it had been baking for awhile? Would love to know so I can try this recipe!

    Never mind – I see the question was answered. Thanks again!

    Oh that looks really good. I never thought about cranberries and cheesecake together. Although I think you can put almost anything with cheesecake and it will be yummy lol.

    Bridget baked a beautiful Cranberry Apple Pie for Tidymom's Party and now I see here your beautiful Cranberry Cheesecake. Love the red and pink colours and I'll just bet it tastes twice as good as it looks.

    As always Diane, your photos are fabulous.

    This sounds great and looks beautiful and festive. Great idea to use cranberries in a cheesecake. I would never have thought of that.

    I am going to a cookie/pie swap on Sunday and was looking for something unusual and festive to take. So I think I found my pie…thanks:)

    I am a little hesitant to use a dough crust. Do you think it would be good to use a graham cracker crust instead?

    Basically it was love at first site with this cheese cake. Oh. My. Goodness. How many cups of cranberries do you suggest?

  30. 30

    i've been making a cranberry orange cheesecake for years, but the orange is inside he cheesecake and the cranberries are a topping. this looks divine and i will definitely be making it. wahoo! found your link off of pioneer woman.

  31. 31

    I was just discussing this cranberry cheesecake pie with a friend that's as cranberry crazy as me. She suggested, and I agree, that toasted walnuts put into the crust before adding the filling would add a lovely nutty crunch that would be just AWESOME in this. Amazing looking pie. Can't wait to try it!!

    I'm a new fan and all I have to say is WOW!!!! Forget about that cranberry sauce I was going to make for my very first Thanksgiving Turkey dinner for my in-laws.. HELLOOOOOO cranberry cheesecake! Looks fabulous. I added this to our SAHM of Etsy team Facebook page!! Couldn't help but share with EVERYONE!!!!

    -Rebecca Slusarchyk

    P.S. I found your blog through The Pioneer Women!

  33. 33

    Yum! I love cheesecake, and this one looks amazing.
    Found you through Pioneer Woman :)

  34. 34

    If the Pioneer Woman hadn't put this on her site, I would never have seen this. I make pies for a local restaurant, this is going to be a pie I'll spring on them. Thank you so much for sharing. They loved the cranberry topped cheesecake I took down. We'll see if this is a hit, too.

    Just made it and am eating my first piece!

    It tastes fabulous but it didn't set all the way…any suggestions?

    sopranorebecca says:

    Hi Dianne,

    Thanks for getting back to me! I left it in the oven for the extra hour but I think I figured it out.

    …I was eating a piece warm. I couldn't stand waiting, haha! So, when my husband got home and it had chilled all day it was perfectly set.

    Thanks for an amazing recipe!

  37. 37

    so where to find the recipes in a format I can just print them off? Am I missing something? I don't see it

  38. 38

    Made this today, and it is fabulous! Thanks!

  39. 39

    Thank you! I've been looking for dessert ideas for the last few days without inspiration, but that cheesecake pie looks awesome! I love that I can make it ahead of time, so it's definitely going to be made tomorrow for Thanksgiving.

  40. 40

    What size pie crust did you use? It looks amazing!

  41. 41

    This looked so good, I had to try it! What size package of cream cheese did you use? I used 2 8 oz. packages and ended up with enough filling to fill a 9-inch pie plate and 5 4 oz. ramekins! Yowza! Also, my 30-year-old harvest gold Partridge Family blender couldn't begin to mix/chop the filling. I had to use a food processor. I can't wait to eat a slice!

  42. 42

    I made the cheesecake. It was a smashing success. I waxed poetic a little about it on my blog

  43. 43

    I just made this for tomorrow's Christmas dinner! There was enough filling leftover that I also made cute little versions of this with my other pie crust and a mini muffin tin for my family to take home with them. OH MY GOSH they are delicious! I never would have thought of cranberries with cheesecake but it's so perfect! Thanks, have a wonder holiday!

  44. 44

    Diane- I want to make this for Thankies!! Gorgeous!!


  45. 45

    is the crust prebaked? or unbaked?

  46. 46

    The ingredient list shows 4 Tablespoons but the instructions say 4 teaspoons of flour. Which is it?

    • 47

      I’m so sorry about the mistake. The ingredient list is correct. 4 Tablespoons is the correct amount of flour.

      • 48

        I can’t believe you answered so quickly! I had gone ahead and used tablespoons, so that was lucky. The pie looks beautiful, can’t wait to eat it today. Thanks for answering, and Happy Thanksgiving!

  47. 49

    Thanks!! My mouth is watering!!

  48. 50

    at what point do you add the sugar it doesn’t say
