This is fabulous to serve at Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. It is slightly tangy and with only one crust is lower in fat than traditional pies.

2 cups apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
2 cups frozen cranberries
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons flour
1 pie crust

Pour mixture into a pie crust and bake at 400 degrees in a preheated oven for 30 minutes.

Remove from oven and add the crumb topping (recipe below) to top of pie. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes.

Crumb topping:
Mix together in another bowl
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
With pastry cutter, cut/add into flour mixture 4 tablespoons of cold butter

Allow pie to rest for 10-15 minutes prior to serving. Excellent with cool whip or ice cream.
