Apricot Cranberry Crumb Pie

Fall is coming soon and this is one of my favorite pies to make in the Fall. Tart dried apricots and dried cranberries are a perfect pair in this fruity pie.

How to Make Apricot Cranberry Crumb Pie


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, over medium high heat, combine the apricots, sugar and 2 1/2 cups of water. Bring to a simmer and cook for 35-40 minutes, stirring frequently, until apricots are tender (yet chewy) and are just starting to fall apart. Combine the cornstarch and remaining 3 tablespoons of water and stir into apricot mixture. Continue to cook for an additional 5 minutes or until thickened. At this point, add more water, if needed, to reach desired consistency. Remove from heat and stir in cranberries and extract. Cool.
  • 2Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar and margarine with a pastry blender until pea-size crumbs form. Set aside.
  • 3When filling is cooled, transfer to pie shell and sprinkle crumbs evenly over top. Garnish with cinnamon if desired. Cover exposed pie crust with foil to prevent burning.
  • 4Bake for 20-25 minutes or until filling is hot and bubbly and crumbs just start to brown.
