Whenever I mention that at a holiday dinner, someone inevitably takes the fork that was recently inside their mouth and pokes it at me, hoping I'll try a bite. I don't like, or dislike, Pumpkin Pie.
I simple prefer pretty little cranberries to messy orange pumpkins, filled with slimey junk and ghostly white seeds. Once you try my pie, you will, too.
Cranberry Apple Pie
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 1/4 cups flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups fresh, lovely, cranberries
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 5 sliced Granny Smith apples
- 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 Pillsbury pie shell (Don't bother making your own. Face it. They're better at this than we are.)
- 1 cup crushed Graham Crackers
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- In a saucepan, mix together sugar, 1/4 cup flour, and salt.
- Stir in cranberries and maple syrup.
- Cook over high heat, stirring, until mixture comes to a boil.
- Stir in apples, simmer for 5 minutes.
- Pour apple mixture into pie shell; sprinkle in the walnuts. Sprinkle on the Luscious Topping.
- Bake 30 minutes @ 375 (F) degrees.
Cut yourself a big slice and wait for a Pumpkin Pie lover to say something derogatory. Then slowly remove the fork from your mouth, scoop up a sample size piece from your plate and ask them to try a bite, germs and all. It's only fair.
This sounds and looks delicious, Kate. I'm the only one in my family who likes cranberries, however, so I'll have to wait until I'm going to a big gathering to make this. Or I could just eat it all myself:)
