The two types of cranberries mix with apples in this recipe to create a sweet and tart pie.


For the Crust

For the Filling

  • Juice of 1 orange

  • Zest of 1 orange

  • 5 cups peeled, sliced apples (approximately 5 medium apples)

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ½ cup fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped (if frozen, do not thaw)

  • ½ cup dried cranberries

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the Topping

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup sugar

  • 2 tablespoons oats

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon


  1. To make crust, follow directions for Pumpkin Pie crust. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll pie dough out into a 12-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place dough in a 9-inch pie pan and refrigerate while you make the filling and topping.

  2. To make filling, mix all filling ingredients together in a medium bowl.

  3. To make topping, mix all topping ingredients together in a small bowl. The topping mixture should clump when pressed together.

  4. Add filling to cold pie crust and scatter topping all over the filling. Bake at 400 degrees until the juice in the center of the pie is bubbling, about 1 hour. If the crust or topping becomes too dark, cover the pie loosely with foil.

  5. Transfer to a wire rack; cool completely before serving.

Cook's Notes

Gravenstein apples work best because they hold their shape and have a delicious tart flavor. If you cannot find Gravenstein, try Pink Lady, McIntosh, or Braeburn.
