  • Fresh cranberries work best for this recipe but you can also use frozen cranberries. If using frozen, either allow them to thaw first or you may have to increase your cooking time a few minutes.
  • Fresh squeezed orange juice is best. I always zest the orange first, then squeeze the juice out.
  • You can add a bit of cinnamon to the fruit filling as well if you want. I almost always use pumpkin pie spice when a recipe calls for cinnamon.
  • The butter slices easily if it is cold.
  • This cranberry cobbler tastes great when served hot or cold and I'll never deny a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
