Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the cranberries and apples in a large mixing bowl; stir to combine.
  2. Stir in the sugar, lemon juice, and flour; set aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Scrape the filling into the chilled pie crust; smooth the top with your hands.
  4. Place pie on the center rack of a 400° oven; bake for 30 minutes.
  5. While the pie is baking, make the topping--in a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and cinnamon; add in the butter and rub it into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs; refrigerate until ready to use.
  6. Take the pie out of the oven and lower oven temperature to 375°.
  7. Sprinkle the crumb topping over the filling and press gently to compact.
  8. Return pie to oven--rotate pie so that the part that faced the back of the oven now faces the front (put a foil-lined baking sheet onto the rack below to catch any spills).
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the juices bubble thickly aroung the edge.
  10. Put pie on a wire rack to cool for at least 1 hour before serving.
