Amish Cran-Apple Pie


My mother made this one Thanksgiving and I ended up snatching most of it. One of the best tasting pies out there, in my opinion. The crust was taught to me by my Amish grandmother and easy to make.

Crumble Pie Crust:

  • cup oil

  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons white sugar

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons salt

Cran-Apple Pie Filling:

  • 2 cups frozen cranberries, sorted and rinsed

  • 2 cups chopped apples

  • cup white sugar

  • 3 ½ teaspoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Combine oil and milk in a liquid measuring cup; stir to combine.

  3. Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl; mix together with a fork. Add oil mixture and mix until well combined. Press a little more than 1/2 of the crust mixture into the bottom and sides of a pie plate, using a spatula if necessary, as mixture will crumble easily.

  4. Combine cranberries and apples in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, flour, and lemon juice; mix until fruit is evenly coated. Pour filling into the pie plate and crumble remaining crust mixture over the top.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until filling is bubbly and crumb topping is golden brown, 40 to 50 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can use any pie crust you prefer in place of this one.

I usually use Granny Smith or Honeycrisp apples.
