      I put this topping on it instead of the top crust and it was like heaven in our mouths.

      This pie is fantastic and I give it 5 stars. It has a great taste and it is not to sweet.I think cooking the cranberies with the cranberry juice made it so tasty I made it now in the middle of summer,since I had to use some apples and cranberries from the freezer.I added 2 Tablespoons of tapioca to the apples and let them sit for 15 minutes for the tapioca to get soft. I will make this pie again and of course for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
