The mixture of tart cranberries combined with fresh juicy apples, brown sugar and cinnamon make this homemade pie truly special.
Can you guys believe that Christmas has come and gone already?! It was our little guys first christmas and it was the best one yet. I’m so in love with seeing the magic in John’s eyes – I can’t wait for Ryan to get a little older to enjoy all of the Christmas magic with his brother! Not rushing anything, though. I’m trying to soak up every second of newborn gushiness!
I have a delicious pie recipe for you guys today! This was totally inspired by the holidays. It’s just perfect for this time of year. It’s an apple pie made even better with cranberries mixed it to give it an extra layer and depth of flavor. I just love how the apples soften and the cranberries burst and ooze into the pie filing.
To prepare this pie, I started with my favorite store-bought Wewalka pie crust. Seriously, you guys, this pie crust is buttery, flaky and comes out so nice and crisp on top – just how pie crust should be. It truly is the best! These pie crusts come single in the package so you will need two packages. This is great for those times when you only need a bottom crust – no waste!
To make the filling, you’ll just mix everything together in a large bowl and make sure all fruit is evenly coated. I recommend baking the bottom pie crust first because it will get slightly soggy while baking if you don’t. Sometimes I skip this step out of pure laziness and it comes out fine but I prefer a nice crisp bottom crust.
