Cranberry apple pie is the perfect Thanksgiving dessert. Tart cranberries and sweet juicy apples baked to perfection inside a flaky, buttery pie crust. Plus my no fail tips on how to make the perfect pie, every time!
I don’t know about your family, but in mine pie is a staple at our holiday table. And I’m a little embarrassed to say I have been known to scrape the filling out of my piece, leaving behind a pastry skeleton on my dessert plate. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a baker at heart and I love to make (and enjoy) sweet treats, but there’s just something about pastry that’s not done quite right when it’s soggy on the bottom, dry on the top, and it leaves that greasy film on the roof of your mouth.
It’s for this reason that the thought of baking a pie from scratch can be downright intimidating, even for experienced bakers, because pastry is pretty easy to get wrong and because commercially made pie crusts are widely available at low prices and they just look so darn professional! Now, I’m not going to tell you that this is the best cranberry apple pie recipe in the
world (because until I try every pie in the world I can’t safely say that), but I will tell you that this is a fantastic recipe and I’m about to share some simple tricks to help you achieve a great homemade pie crust, every single time.
And because it’s fall, I thought I’d share a nice little twist on the traditional apple pie with this unbelievably delicious Cranberry Apple Pie. You won’t even believe how amazing this tastes!! It’s like mulled cranberry apple cider in pie-form. So good! You are going to love it!
