Apple Almond Cranberry Pie

Cranberry almond apple pie recipe, using Odense Almond Paste, tart apples, cranberries, chopped almonds, with a streusel topping.


  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided into two 1/2 teaspoon portions
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup uncooked oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 4 to 5 apples good for cooking (like Granny Smith, Fuji, jonagold), sliced you should have 4 to 5 cups
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 roll (about 7 oz) Almond Paste (recommended brand is Odense)
  • 1 unbaked 9" pie crust
  • 3/4 cup fresh or thawed frozen cranberries or 3/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup white granulated sugar if using fresh or frozen cranberries, 1/4 cup if using sweetened dried cranberries


1 In a bowl, combine 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, flour, oats, and brown sugar. Cut butter into flour mixture until crumbs are formed.

2 Peel, core, and slice the apples, and place them in a bowl. Toss with a little apple cider vinegar to keep them from turning brown.

3 Preheat oven to 375°F. Roll almond paste on a sheet of wax paper to form an 8 to 9 inch circle. Press rolled almond paste into the bottom of an unbaked pie crust.

4 Add cranberries, white sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to the bowl with the apples. Toss so everything is lightly coated with the sugar and cinnamon. Pack into pie shell.

5 Spoon crumb mixture evenly over apples. Bake 1 hour 10 minutes to 1 hour 25 minutes, until bubbly. After 40 minutes of baking, place a large piece of aluminum foil over the pie to prevent the topping from burning.

    I made this pie and it was delicious!! Quick question, there was alot of juice when I cut the first slice. Any ideas on how to avoid this? Thanks!

    Mmm that looks good. i just used up all my cranberries. I finally did the cranberry relish for Christmas – it was delish. A different spin on a classic, and enjoyed by all.
