I have been making this recipe for years. However I make mine with 1 tsp of cornstarch instead of flour and omit the cinnamon and nutmeg from the pie and put it in the topping. We really prefer a crumb top on this pie. It really compliments the apple/cranberry filling. Here is my recipe for a crumb top: 1 c all purpose flour 1/2 c packed brown sugar 1/3 c old-fashioned oats 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 c chilled unsalted butter cut into small pieces. Rub in butter with fingertips or process w/food processor until mixture resembles coarse meal. Read More

this is a pretty easy pie to make few ingredients needed. I found it to be too sweet and if I were to make this again I would not add the brown sugar. I also used a crumb topping that contained brown sugar adding to the sweetness. The cranberry sauce had enough sugar and personally I feel that no other sugar is needed in this pie. Read More

Thanks for this great recipe. I don't ever make pies, but my church was having an apple pie contest, and I won first prize with this recipe. Again thanks for sharing. We had 3 people get saved that day at church. (not because of the pie) Read More

So simple and turned out very well with great flavor. Added extra spices to taste ground cloves and sprinkled a layer of toasted chopped walnuts on the bottom of the pie before filling. Read More

I really liked this recipe. I did change from a pastry topping to a crumb topping and added pecans to both the filling and topping which my family liked. Read More

This was really good. It got rave reviews at Thanksgiving dinner. My sister's boyfriend (a very picky eater) said it was the best apple pie he has ever had. Very easy to make. Makes a ton of filling so make sure to place the pie pan on a cookie sheet to catch any spill over. Consistency was perfect. Will definitely make again. Read More

Great recipe. I thought the first time I made it that it wasn't quite cranberry enough so I usually add another half can or so and up the spice levels. Read More

This pie was definitely a hit at our Thanksgiving this year. I was a little nervous since I didn't have time for a "test pie" before the big day but it turned out great. I officially have a new favorite apple pie recipe and I'll probably even make it again for Christmas. Just fyi I used all six apples 2 granny smith and 4 golden delicious but next time I'm tempted to up the number of granny smiths. The pie wasn't nearly as tart as I thought it might be. Thank you for the great recipe! Read More
