The holiday season is here, and it’s time for some traditional baking of cookies, breads and pies. Here in our home we love this French Apple Cranberry Pie. It’s a festive, colorful twist on the traditional apple pie, perfect for a Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hanukkah table.
This recipe is easy to make using just a single pie crust, some apples, cranberries with seasonings and a scrumptious buttery crumb topping. There’s no need to struggle with a double pie crust; the crumbly topping adds pizazz to this delectable pie.
It’s important to choose the best apples for baking – apples that keep their shape when cooked – such as Granny Smith, Braeburn or Honeycrisp. I use a combination of sweet (Honeycrisp) and tart (Granny Smith) apples as more variety imparts a richer flavor.

In a separate bowl, mix together the brown sugar, granulated sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and 3 Tablespoons flour.
Dot with 2 Tablespoons butter and get ready to make the topping.
Cover the edge of the pie crust with aluminum foil.
Remove foil from edges but cover the top of the pie with foil to prevent the crumb mixture from burning.
