Apple Cranberry Pie Recipe

Apple Cranberry Pie Recipe

Although it's my husband who's the cook at our house, I enjoy baking. A good friend passed along this recipe to me. The pie was an instant hit with my family, and I've been giving the recipe to other friends ever since. —Janet Morgan-Cavallaro, Pincourt, Quebec

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
