Holly Jolly Sangria Pie

Tis the season to be jolly, and you better bet this pie will knock those holly jolly socks right off! You guys won’t believe what I did to make this. So, it was Thanksgiving last week. I’m not a big drinker but have been really into sangria lately. I’m actually not really sure why, but I decided to make some. Boy was it a hit! If my family didn’t like my cooking, they at least liked the sangria. I cut up some green apples + red apples + oranges and then dumped some frozen cranberries in there and added a couple cinnamon sticks. Yum! Well we had no problem drinking it, ALL of it, but there was TONS of the fruit leftover and I just couldn’t bring myself to throw it all away #problemsofafoodie. Well, what do I do with it all?! Soaked in sangria for a couple of days, it was pretty boozy but had a great sweet taste! Long story short, I made pie! haha I mean, that’s a normal resolution, right?! I dumped all the fruit into a sauce pan, cooked it down, added some sugar and ta-da! The crust is simple and made with only 4 ingredients! Now, you don’t have to soak all your fruit in liquor prior to making this pie, but it could make for a lot more holly and jolly.
