Move over chocolate, fruity desserts are coming in hot! This recipe combines some of our favorite classic holiday flavors into a delicious pie using our Artisan Bread Mix.



Crust Ingredients
1 box Simple Mills Artisan Bread Mix
2 Tbsp Coconut oil, melted
2 Tbsp Apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup Water
1 tsp Vanilla
Filling Ingredients
1 cup Cranberries
2 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp Maple syrup
¼ cup Lemon juice (approx. 1 large lemon)
4 eggs, room temperature
1 ½ cup Organic coconut sugar
1/3 cup Full-fat coconut milk
3 Tbsp Dairy-free butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp Arrowroot starch
1 Tbsp Gluten-free flour
½ tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp Organic powdered sugar, optional


PREHEAT oven to 350 F.
MIX the Simple Mills Artisan Bread Mix, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, water, and vanilla in a bowl until a large ball of dough forms.
ROLL the dough out on a piece of parchment paper until about ½ inch in thickness.  Transfer the dough to a 9-inch pie pan greased with oil.  The easiest way to transfer the dough is to flip the parchment paper with the rolled out dough into the pie dish.  You can then fix any broken edges and pieces.  Poke a few holes in the bottom of the pie with a fork.  Place the pie pan in the fridge while you prepare the filling.
HEAT the cranberries, water, and maple syrup in a skillet over medium-low heat.  Stir until the cranberries burst and the mixture begins to thicken up (approx. 5 – 7 minutes total).  Set aside to cool.
MIX the lemon juice, eggs, and cane sugar in a bowl with a mixer.  Add the coconut milk, dairy-free butter, and vanilla and mix again until well incorporated.  Add the arrowroot starch, gluten-free flour, and sea salt and mix until no flour clumps remain.
FOLD the cranberry mixture into the bowl with the lemon filling.
POUR the filling into the pie crust and bake in the oven for 40 – 45 minutes.  The center of the pie will be slightly jiggly which is okay.  Let the pie cool on the counter before transferring to the fridge to set for about an hour.
SPRINKLE with powdered sugar if desired and serve!
