This Dutch Apple Cranberry Pie is everything. It’s balanced with sweet and tart, loaded with delicious spices, and topped with a scrumptious crumble.
Last weekend equaled the freeziest December I remember since we planted ourselves in the land of frozen lakes. It’s been 8 years and I don’t remember it every hitting -20F this early.
We get through the daunting winters by trail hiking, sledding, and running outdoors. Even Bulldog romps alongside in his pink sweater. We have to be outdoorsy all winter or risk going cabin-fever-stir-crazy. 😖
But when it’s 20 below zero with blasting wind chill, we’ve gotta put the brakes on it and hunker down.
During temporary hibernation with my Littles, we dive for pie with an easy crumble topping so there’s no fussing with a second layer pie dough.
Plus, the crispy brown sugar pecan crumble is pretty darn splendid.
One may need to exercise immense self discipline in order not to eat all the crumble from the pie before it makes its official table debut.
‘Course, one can always make lotsa extra crumble topping. Just saying…after all, it’s your pie. 😇
