I roughly chopped the cranberries in a food processor. I also added a little vanilla to the filling.
For the crust, I added cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg and allspice. I think spices go really well in a dessert like this.
Blueberry-Pear, Cherry Almond, Peach, Triple berry (raspberry, blueberry and blackberry)...would all be delicious fruit to use too!
