Looking for a twist on your typical apple pie recipe? Apple Cranberry Crumble Pie is just different enough to be special - and it may just be the perfect holiday dessert. It's certainly one of our faves.
1/2cuppacked brown sugar (I prefer dark but light works too)
1/2cup1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
4-5large applespeeled, cored, and cut into 3/4-inch pieces (about 5 cups) (Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, and Gala are all great)
2cupsof your favorite homemade cranberry sauce or 1 (16-ounce) can whole-berry cranberry sauce
1pie crust for the bottomyour favorite recipe or store-bought refrigerated, no judgment!
Vanilla ice cream
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Make the crumb topping. Mix the flour, brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add the butter and cut in with your fingers until the mixture resembles large coarse crumbs.
Make the filling. In a large bowl, mix the apples, cranberry sauce, sugar, vanilla, and cornstarch until well mixed.
Place the pie crust in a pie dish, and pour the apple filling into the shell. Mound it a little in the middle.
Sprinkle the crumb topping over the apples. There will be a lot. Pack it down a bit, if necessary.
Place the pie on a baking sheet, and place in the oven. Bake for about an hour and 10 minutes, or until the apples are tender and the crust and top are golden brown.
Transfer to a wire rack and cool for at least 15 minutes.
