Cheddar-Almond Pie with Cranberry Streusel

Recipe Description

One bite of this delicious pie will convince you that this cranberry-cheddar cheese pairing was destined for dessert.


  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
  • 2 1/4 cups slivered almonds (8 ounces)
  • 2 cups (8 oz) Wood River Creamery Original Cheddar Gruyere, shredded
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cranberry-Almond Streusel 

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds (about 4 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar


Heat oven to 350°F.

Roll out pie pastry on a lightly floured surface. Transfer to a 9-inch pie plate, and trim pastry to 1/2 inch of plate; flute edges.

Place slivered almonds in a food processor; cover and process until finely ground. Add cheddar; cover and pulse until cheddar mixture resembles coarse sand.

Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, flour, cornstarch, vanilla and cheddar mixture; beat just until mixture is blended. Spoon into pastry.

Cranberry-Almond Streusel

Combine the cranberries, sliced almonds, and brown sugar in a bowl; sprinkle over filling. Lightly pat streusel.

Bake for 50-60 minutes or until filling is set and puffs slightly in center. Lightly cover with foil if crust or cranberries are over-browning. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate leftovers.
