This Cinnamon Roll Apple Cranberry Pie may be better than apple pie, and it’s so gorgeous with a burst of red color from the cranberries.

This Cinnamon Roll Apple Cranberry Pie recipe is an easy to make dessert that everyone will love

The cinnamon roll crust is much more fun than using pastry, and the cranberries create a beautiful color contrast. It’s so tasty with a delicious cinnamon, apple, cranberry combination.

This recipe is ideal for Thanksgiving or the holiday season, although frankly it’s great year-round.

Many apples will work for this recipe, although we prefer Granny Smith. Fresh or frozen cranberries are perfect, just avoid dried as they’re too chewy. Before you get started, be sure to watch our video tutorial below:
