Recipe of the Week...Cranapple Streusel Topped Pie

This delicious fall pie has a wonderful sweet and tart flavor that is perfectly enhanced by the streusel topping. A dollop of vanilla ice cream can be added when serving, if desired. Soooo good!

  • 3 large apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries (washed and drained)
  • 1/8 cup lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1 unbaked 9" pastry for pie
Line 9" pie place with pastry and flute edges. In a large mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour into pie plate and top with streusel:

Streusel Ingredients:
  • 1 stick margarine
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Cut margarine into dry ingredients to form a crumbly mixture, and then spoon mixture onto the top of the pie filling.

Bake pie for 10 minutes in a 450 degree oven. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake approximately 50 minutes longer. Serve warm with ice cream, if desired. Refrigerate leftovers.

Have a blessed day!
