  • 1 9 inch Pie crust I used an unbaked frozen crust I had on hand. Any crust will do.


  • 3 cup apples I used what I had on hand
  • 2 cup cranberries If using frozen, partially thaw them first.
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar I used unrefined sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon Ground


  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar I used unrefind sugar
  • 4 tablespoon butter Slightly softened
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon Ground


  1. Prepare the pie crust.
  2. Peel and slice the apples
  3. In a large bowl mix the apples, cranberries, lemon juice, brown sugar, sugar, and cinnamon together.
  4. Pour into the prepared pie crust.
  5. In another smaller bowl mix the brown sugar, sugar, butter, and cinnamon together.
  6. Top the pie with the sugar and butter mix.
  7. Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 45 to 55 minutes or until the filling is bubbling and the topping is getting slightly browned.
  8. Let the pie cool before serving.

Recipe Notes

This was the first time I've made this pie. I adapted my Dutch Apple Pie recipe. 

I used frozen cranberries but fresh would work just as well.

When choosing the apples a firm sweet apple would be the best to use. I used the apples I had on hand which were Gala, they weren't as firm as I would have liked. There are so many delicious varieties of apples available especially in the fall.

The timing is dependent on how your oven cooks. Keep an eye on the pie after the 40-minute mark.
