In my family we love pies and almost never eat cake. Pie is almost like a healthy sweet. I mean it’s full of fruit?!
I had some fresh cranberries meant for thanksgiving cranberry sauce but I forgot to freeze it and it was going to go bad if I didn’t use it. I immediately went online and started browsing recipe ideas using cranberries. Well I saw a pie and I had apples so…. you get the idea?😂
ok so you definitely don’t have to braid all the crust like I did because for some of you it’s probably really hard and time consuming. It does take some time and you have to be very gentle. Of course you can just roll it out and cover the whole pie (poke holes with a fork) and bake it for the same amount of time. Basically do the crust as you please or maybe do no crust and just bake the filling!
My crust recipes
The best pie crust this pie crust is not vegan and it’s my recipe from before I was vegan.
Vegan pear crumb pie you can use the crumble top from this.
Vegan pie crust this is the crust I always use.
apples. Since I use very little sugar in this recipe I’d advise that you use sweeter apples like honey crisp and gala.
Sugar. I used organic cane sugar.
Coconut oil. You can use coconut oil or vegan butter. Either will work just fine.
Cranberries. Fresh or frozen cranberries work well.
