I found an amazing variation of apple pie on called Caramel Apple Cranberry Pie. I can’t call this recipe my own but I want to make you aware of it because it is sooo good! I made this for the first time this week and everyone loved it. I can already tell that this will be my new favorite pie for the holidays and for the next get together. This recipe is easy to moderate.
