This French Apple Cranberry Pie is a festive, colorful twist on a traditional apple pie. My family loves the sumptuous, buttery crumb topping.
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 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.
