Cranberry Apple Streusel Pie


I made this with the apples from the trees in our yard (I have no idea what variety of apple they are).  I imagine you could use any apple although the ones with bold flavor (like granny smith) would be really delicious.  I hope you like this as much as my family did!
Yield:  1 pie
Pie crust for a 1 crust pie (you can go scratch or buy the pre-made crusts)
Filling
4   cups sliced peeled cooking apples (4 medium)
2   cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Topping
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash nutmeg
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup chopped pecans  (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place pie crust in 9-inch glass pie pan.
In large bowl, gently mix apples and cranberries. In small bowl, mix remaining filling ingredients. Add dry ingredients to fruit; toss to coat. Pour into crust-lined pan. In small bowl, mix all topping ingredients except butter and pecans. With pastry blender or fork, cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in pecans. Sprinkle evenly over filling. Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until apples are tender, and crust and topping are golden brown. After 15 to 20 minutes of baking, cover crust edge with strips of foil to prevent excessive browning.
Serve warm with whipped cream (homemade is the BEST) or vanilla ice cream.
Enjoy!
