Have a Very Merry, Connecticut Cran-Apple Pie
We wish you a wonderful holiday and a tasty feast! Please enjoy one of our favorite seasonal pies. It's the perfect mix of sweet and tart —and it comes together quickly if you're looking for a last-minute dessert.
Since we're all hunkering down in our own abodes, we wanted to share one of our favorite pies from Ransom's neck of the woods. Delicious on its own, this bright holiday dessert readily welcomes a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whip cream.
Put on some Christmas music, pre-heat the oven, and get ready for a delightful delectable.
