Fall Fruit Pie



For the pie:

  • 1 pie shell
  • 5 small apples, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 3 small pears, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1/3c dried cranberries, (or more or less to taste)
  • 1/4c sugar
  • 1/4c brown sugar
  • 1/4c flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2tsp cinnamon
  • scant 1/2tsp ginger
  • 1/41/2tsp cloves (I used a generous, heaping 1/4tsp)
  • pinch salt

For the topping:

  • 1/2c cold butter
  • 1c brown sugar
  • 1/2c oatmeal
  • 1/2c flour
  • 1/41/2c chopped pecans
  • 1/4tsp salt


  1. In a large bowl, combine apples, pears, and cranberries. Add in sugar, brown sugar, flour, vanilla, spices, and salt. Pour filling into pie shell.
  2. In a medium bowl, blend topping incredients until well combined and very crumbly. I use a pastry blender, but you could use two knives or two forks. Sprinkle over filling.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until crumble topping is very golden and set.
  4. Cool completely before serving.
