Warm and soft cinnamon apples mingle with sweet dried cranberries in this irresistible Cranberry Apple Pie filling! It’s paired with a buttery homemade crust and a crispy oatmeal streusel topping for the ultimate holiday treat.


For the Filling

  • 56 Medium apples, sliced
  • 1 cup (160g) dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup (56g) chopped walnuts
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup (70g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (110g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon (2.5g) ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

For the Streusel

  • 2/3 cup (54g) rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup (47g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (55g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup (28g) chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon (2.5g) ground cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons (85g) unsalted butter, cold


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Prepare your favorite pie crust. If the recipes make two crusts, freeze one for next time. Place pie crust in pie plate.
  3. Peel and slice the apples about 1/8” thick and toss with the lemon juice. Combine sliced apples and cranberries in a medium size bowl. Squeeze lemon juice over apples and toss to coat the apples.
  4. Combine the dry ingredients and gently toss. Then drizzle the maple syrup over top. Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust.
  5. Dice the butter into small pieces and combine with the flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Use a pastry cutter or two forks and press the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles a crumbly mixture and the butter is broken down into smaller pieces.
  6. Next add the rolled oats and cut it into the flour mixture. Once it’s roughly combined, use your hands to start pressing the mixture into larger pieces and place on top of the apple filling.
  7. Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350°F. If the crust is browning too fast, put a piece of tin foil over the top of the pie or use a pie sheild. Remove from oven and allow to cool before cutting.
