Cranberry Apple Pie

I absolutely loaded this pie up with tart apples, cranberries, and a bit of sweet brown sugar. The flavor was sweet and tart and perfect for this time of year! I think I'll be making this again for Christmas dinner.

  • 7 tart apples I used a mix of Granny Smith and Pink Lady
  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Pie crust
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water for egg wash
  • Sprinkling of granulated sugar for crust


  • Peel and slice the apples into 1/8 inch thick slices. Add to a large mixing bowl and squeeze lemon juice over the top.
  • Stir in the cranberries, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Toss to combine well.
  • Place one pie crust in a pie pan. Add apple mixture to the crust. It will seem like you have way too many apples, but just mound them up as high as you can.
  • Top with the remaining piece of pie crust and seal the edges. Slice 4 1-inch slits in the top pie crust to vent.
  • Brush with the egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 and continue baking for 45 minutes.
  • Cover edges of pie crust with foil if they start browning too quickly.
  • Cool completely before slicing and serving.
