Cranberry-Peach Pie

You might think something's gone wrong when the only way to a keep a slice of pie intact is to serve it in a bowl. But don't let the bowl fool you, because once you try a slice of baker-owner Gretchen Glatte's cranberry-peach pie, you'll know that everything has gone absolutely right. The slivers of peach are deep and earthy, the cranberries tart and tangy, and the crispy but tender, shiny crust, with its sprinkling of powdered sugar, rivals the best crusts you've ever tasted. If peaches and cranberries go out of season, don't worry. There's a reason filling is called filler, even one as good as cranberry-peach. Because it's not the fruit filling you're chasing, it's the perfect crust.
