Apple Cranberry Crumb Pie

This is another recipe from recipegirl.com. This pie was oh so good. It will make a great gift or serving for company.

TOPPING:
1 cup flour
½ cup packed golden brown sugar
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
¾ tsp ground cinnamon
1 stick chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

PIE:
4 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into ¾” pieces (should be approximately 5 cups)
16 oz can whole-berry cranberry sauce
¾ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp cornstarch
One 9 inch deep-dish frozen pie shell
vanilla ice cream

1. To prepare topping: Mix flour, brown sugar, oats and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add butter; cut in with pastry blender or use your fingertips. Keep cutting until mixture resembles coarse meal. Set aside.

2. To prepare filling: Place baking sheet in oven and preheat to 350° F. Toss apples, cranberry sauce, sugar and cornstarch in large bowl until well blended.




3. Transfer apple-cranberry filling to frozen pie shell, mounding in the center. Sprinkle topping over pie. Set pie on baking sheet in oven. Bake until apples are tender, juices bubble thickly and crust is golden, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Transfer to rack. Cool 15 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
