What better way to eat your way through the holidays than with anything cranberry! The great thing is that cranberry recipes start at Thanksgiving and carry on through the entire holiday season until the new year! I’ve combined all the favorite flavors of the holidays into one delicious bite, cranberries, apples and cheesecake! All of that goodness wrapped up in a flaky pie crust.

FUN FACT: Native Americans were the first to introduce cranberries to our dinner table, but did you know they were also used for their medicinal properties as well as color dye for Native American textiles.
