This cranberry apple pie braid is a quick and easy dessert for your next holiday get together.
Hi there! I’m Liz from Liz on Call. I’m all about keeping things simple and doable, especially at the holidays. I’m so excited to be part of this holiday series here at The Idea Room and to be able to share my Cranberry Apple Pie Bread Recipe with you!
I love Thanksgiving. The time with family, the weather outside and of course the delicious food. My absolutely favorite dessert is apple pie. I look forward to the pie every holiday season. Although apple is my favorite, I really like all kinds of pie.
But it can take a lot of work to make pie. And keeping it simple at the holidays is always my number one plan. This cranberry apple pie braid allows me to get my pie fix, but it’s so easy to make, and I’m not spending all day in the kitchen.
Plus the flavor combination in this cranberry apple pie braid is really so delicious! I don’t know what I like the best. The sweet apples, the tart cranberries or the amazing orange glaze on top. The flavors go together so well. It’s all the scents and flavors of the season in one dessert.Print
A perfect dessert for any holiday gathering that can be done in no time.
- Yield: 12 servings
- 1 package frozen puff pastry (2 sheets)
- 1 small can apple pie filling
- 3/4 cup whole berry canned cranberry sauce
- 1 orange zested and juiced
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 TBL veg. oil
- 1 TBL water
This doesn’t have to be just for dessert, it could also be a great addition to a holiday brunch table.
If you are better at visuals when it comes to cooking, you can see a video of how to create the braid I did when I made my apple pie braid. The process is the same, the ingredients are just a bit different.
Cranberry and apple together has become one of my favorite holiday combinations over the last couple years. Last year for Thanksgiving I made this cranberry apple pie and it was a fun twist on traditional apple pie.
And what’s a holiday get together without some easy party punch recipes like this cranberry apple fizz.
Thanks for letting me visit with you all today.
