This recipe comes from "The Barefoot Contessa". Ina Garten says that this recipe is inspired by a cranberry pie from Sarah Chase's book Cold Weather Cooking. Her friend Barbara Liberman calls it "easy cake"—I call it delicious. When cranberries are in season, serve it with vanilla ice cream and your friends will love you. I have to agree with Ina, in that this is a very easy dessert to make. This is more like a "cheater pie" in that there isn't any dough to roll, shape and crimp. I loved the cake part so much, that I want to make a version with only apples, and I also want to make a version with berries. If you omit the apples, then you might want to add a thickener since the pectin in the apples helps as a natural thickener. I love this recipe!
