I made this for a party over the weekend and it turned out great. All I had was frozen cranberries but in my opinion it's perfect that way. An excellent balance between sweet and tart... and the crumble topping is a GREAT idea. All the ingredients are stuff I almost always have in stock, too... a great recipe for us and I've printed it to add to my faves. Thanks so much!
This kind of pie is at the top of my list (well, along with mince pie!) of holiday desserts, but I also stock my pantry & freezer with both mince AND cranberries so that I can have 'em anytime of the year! Although I followed your ingredient list, I did use 5 large apples along with 3/4 cup each of the dried & frozen cranberries, & ended up baking the pie a bit longer as well, using a piece of foil to keep the top from browning too fast! Delicious to a fault! Many thanks for sharing these recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
Delicious apple/cranberry pie - loved the contrast of the apples, dried and fresh cranberries (had to use fresh - no frozen available). Next time I will make the pie crust from scratch vs. buying a store-bought crust; although, the store-bought crust was just fine. The only thing I might do differently next time is lower the temp to 350 and cook the pie a bit longer to get the apples more tender. I might also reduce the amount of water that is mixed with the cornstarch to make the sauce a little thicker. DH loved it just the way it was! I will definitely make this wonderful pie again.
