Amish Cran-Apple Pie
My mother made this one Thanksgiving and I ended up snatching most of it. One of the best tasting pies out there, in my opinion. The crust was taught to me by my Amish grandmother and easy to make.
- Serves: 8 persons
- ⅔cup oil
- 3tablespoons milk
- 2cups all-purpose flour
- 2teaspoons white sugar
- 1¼ teaspoons salt
- 2cups frozen cranberries, sorted and rinsed
- 2cups chopped apples
- ⅔cup white sugar
- 3½ teaspoons all-purpose flour
- 1tablespoon lemon juice
Step 1Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Step 2Combine oil and milk in a liquid measuring cup; stir to combine.
Step 3Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl; mix together with a fork. Add oil mixture and mix until well combined. Press a little more than 1/2 of the crust mixture into the bottom and sides of a pie plate, using a spatula if necessary, as mixture will crumble easily.
Step 4Combine cranberries and apples in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, flour, and lemon juice; mix until fruit is evenly coated. Pour filling into the pie plate and crumble remaining crust mixture over the top.
Step 5Bake in the preheated oven until filling is bubbly and crumb topping is golden brown, 40 to 50 minutes.
