Apple Cranberry Streusel Pie – your new favorite Thanksgiving pie! Apples and cranberries topped with a crunchy streusel topping!
Apple and cranberry is such a delicious combination! One of my other favorite Thanksgiving desserts is Apple Cranberry Crisp.
This is the one dessert I make every Thanksgiving. I generally like to try new recipes every year but this one is so good that I refuse to have Thanksgiving without it.
If you invite me to Friendsgiving, I’m bringing this pie. Just so you know.
The pie is an apple and cranberry mixture (using canned cranberry so it’s super easy!) that gets topped with an oat streusel. The streusel gets crunchy when baked and it’s just perfect. Give me a streusel topping over a top pie crust any day!
- All-purpose flour
- Light brown sugar
- Old-fashioned oats
- Ground cinnamon
- Refrigerated pie crust – you can also use your favorite homemade pie crust recipe
- Granny Smith apples – you want to use a tart apple since you are adding brown sugar
- Whole berry cranberry sauce – make sure it is the whole cranberry kind and not the jellied kind!
- Prepare. Preheat oven to 350F.
- Make the streusel. To make the streusel, combine flour, 6 tablespoons llight brown sugar, oats and cinnamon. Stir in melted butter until mixture is crumbly; set aside.
- Prepare pie crust. Roll pie crust on lightly floured surface to an 11-inch circle. Fit into a 9-inch pie plate. Fold excess crust at edge under. Press dough together on rim to form a thick crust edge. Form a decorative edge using fingers, fork or other utensil.
- Make apple mixture. Combine apples, cranberry sauce, remaining ¾ cup light brown sugar and cornstarch. Spoon apple mixture into pastry-lined pie plate.
- Top. Sprinkle with streusel.
- Bake. Bake about 1 hour, or until apples are tender.
- Enjoy! Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
How Long Is It Good For?
This apple cranberry pie will be good in the fridge for up to 4 – 5 days. Make sure to store it in an airtight container to keep it fresh for as long as possible.
I recommend reheating it when serving the leftovers.

My family has not been around our extended family for Thanksgiving, so they are usually small–not a bad thing, but my two best Thanksgivings have been spend with friends–my friend Esther and her family when I was in college, and my friend Silvia and her huge family more recently. Great food and great people at all of them!!

Have many tales could tell. Must go with my Thanksgiving baby! Is 1986,had gone to the YMCA to teach my pre-natal fitness and low impact cardio classes. Came home, baked 2pies for the potluck at my in-laws. Woke up 3a.m. in labor. Called it at class the night prior. Not a 1belived me. She was born by 7a.m.Thanksgiving.My complaint was I was stuck with the hospital pressed turkey gross out dinner. No pie or dessert. Butthead family and visitors galore, not a single 1,thinks to BRING ME FOOD! But, had a gorgeous blue eyed,brown haired tiny girl baby. All was good.
My favorite memory is celebrating with my grandparents. I miss them so much.
My favorite Thanksgiving memory is every single year starting the day watching the Macy’s Parade. i am 38 and I am still so excited about watching it this year :)

My favorite #tbt Thanksgiving is the first one we spent with my baby nephew (who isn’t a baby anymore lol). It is so fun to share holidays with little ones around.
Our Thanksgivings were always very routine, so one does not stand out any more than the other. We always went to our grandmas house.
Love both apples and cranberries and I’m sure
this pie would satisfy all cravings!

my tbt memory is when we had potluck for thanksgiving
Getting ready to serve the pie, only to find it in crumbs with a sticky dog next to it!
Too funny! Sounds like something mine would do!

My favorite Thanksgiving #TBT memory was spending it with my dad three years ago, because it was the last time I was able to spend Thanksgiving with him before he passed.

My favorite #TBT Thanksgiving memory is when we would go to my Grandpa’s farm, we would always go exploring and play with the geese. I found out years later that we actually ate some of those geese for Thanksgiving dinners.. I always prefer Turkey these days lol. Thanks for the chance!
My favorite TBT Thanksgiving memory is several years ago some friends and I planned and held our first Friendsgiving. So much fun!

Favorite throw back memory is just whenever my entire family is able to get together for the holiday. We fry up some turkey, make lots of dinner rolls and just hang out in the kitchen talking and catching up! We don’t get to do this often but is fun when we do!
My #TBT Thanksgiving memory is making dinner for my family and watching football!!
Thanksgiving with my grandparents and the entire family coming over is my #TBT Thanksgiving memory

This looks so good! My favorite TBT Thanksgiving memory is when my cousin came home from Afghanistan to see everyone as a surprise,
My favorite Thanksgiving #TBT memory was when my daughter discovered she was taller than me as I was preparing the meal. I was sad to discover my child was growing up but now we think it is so funny.
