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


  1. Preheat 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.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar and margarine with a pastry blender until pea-size crumbs form. Set aside.
  3. When 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.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until filling is hot and bubbly and crumbs just start to brown.
