I will forever be grateful for my (ex) brother-in-law for introducing me to this delicious pie. Whenever we spend Thanksgiving with family I make this pie. After all these years when I think of Thanksgiving I think of a Cranberry Apple Pie.Cranberry Apple Pie

Use a basic pie crust recipe for a double crust 9” pie.

1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp flour

2 cups cranberries
½ cup raisins (optional)

Freshly grated zest of one orange
2 Tbsp unsalted butter

Bake 20 minutes at 425 degrees and then reduce the heat to 350 degrees. Continue to bake until the crust is browned and the fruits are tender – about 40-50 minutes.Cranberry Apple Pie

What a delicious looking pie!! Do you think it would be as good without the raisins? Or if I used dried cranberries in their place? My kids don’t like raisins.

I should have mentioned that the raisins are optional! My kids don’t like the raisins either! 🙂
