In addition to our Cranberry Cream Cheese Danish recipe, file this under “perfect Recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers” because it is. It’s easy and decadent – two features that are an absolute must in my baking repertoire.
This pie has a buttery, creamy apple filling topped with cranberry sauce, then coated with streusel that gets crunchy when the pie is cooled. This is our favorite pie recipe, hands down. You’ll love it, too.
Just be sure and use a 9″ non-stick pie pan. The filling forms a gel and has a tendency to ooze. You’ll want to be able to easily remove slices from the pan. I used the new 9″ Non-Stick Pie Pan I received from Good Cook.
Oh, yum. It’s so good.
- 1 - 9in non-stick pie pan
- 1 - refrigerator pie crust (you can use frozen already in the disposable pan if you prefer.)
- 5 cups (5-6 medium) Granny Smith Apples, peeled and sliced thinly
- 3/4 cup Cranberry Sauce (I make mine using a 12oz bag of fresh cranberries, 1 cup water, 3/4 cup sugar, and boil until thick and mostly smooth.)
- 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick), softened
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Assemble pie crust shell in pan, if necessary. You can use a frozen ready to use pie crust.
- In a large bowl, combine filling ingredients - butter, sugar, vanilla and egg. Beat until well combined.
- Add flour and beat until smooth.
- Fold in apples until well coated and pour into pie pan. They will mound.
- Spoon cranberry sauce on top of the apples.
- In a small bowl, combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon.
- When well combined, stir in flour. It will be finely crumbled.
- Sprinkle evenly over the top of the pie - to the edges, too.
- Bake uncovered at 400 for 15 minutes.
- Reduce the temperature to 350 and cover the entire pie with aluminum foil. Return to oven and continue to bake an additional 45-55 minutes until done - apples will be tender if you stick a knife in the middle. It should sink right in.
- Be sure and bake pie on a large cookie or baking sheet. It may drip.
