The Cranberry Orange Pecan Pie, sent in by Irene Radke, makes a pretty and tasty dessert. "My husband's favorite pie is pecan pie, but it was always a little too rich for me. One day when I was making cranberry relish, I experimented with the cranberry and orange rind, and it came out great," says the resident of Bayfield, Wis.

Grated rind of 1 medium orange
1 (9-inch) piecrust, unbaked
