Apple Cranberry Pie

This pie is based on a tart recipe I found. The almond paste adds a nice flavor. My wife said it was the best apple pie she'd ever had, but maybe she was just being nice. It's not low in calories, so make the slices small. I think we actually got about 12 servings out of it. Use the low sodium pie crust recipe on the web site.

1 Pie Crust,Unbaked
7 oz Almond Paste
1 c Fresh Cranberries
5 c Apples,Peeled And Sliced
1/4 c Sugar
1 t Cinnamon
1/2 c Rolled Oats
1/2 c Flour
1/2 c Brown Sugar
6 T Unsalted Butter
1/4 c Sliced Almonds

Preheat oven to 375. Flatten almond paste to an 8 inch circle with a rolling pin. Place in bottom of unbaked pie crust. Combine cranberries, apples, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon. Pour on top of almond paste. In a small bowl, combine oats, flour, brown sugar and remaining cinnamon. Cut in butter until crumbs form. Top pie with crumb mixture. Bake until crust is golden brown and fruit in tender, about 50-0 minutes. Top with almond slices during last 5 minutes of baking.
