This is a modified apple pie recipe my mother has had for years. I prefer a combination of Braeburn, Fuji, and McIntosh apples.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Fit a pie crust into a 9-inch pie dish and arrange sliced apples into crust. Spread cranberries over apples. Whisk sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle mixture over cranberries. Distribute butter pieces over pie filling. Place remaining crust over filling, crimp both crusts together, and cut several slits into top crust to vent steam.
  3. Bake until pie is browned and fruit filling is bubbling, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

This was very good and everybody liked it. One thing I would do differently next time is to toss the apples and cranberries together with the sugar etc. I usually pile my apples really high because they shrink when cooking - I couldn't do that and put the cranberries on top because the cranberries would roll off. So my pie ended up very thin. Delicious but more the thickness of a tart. With that one change this would be 5+ stars. I do believe this will be making an appearance at the Thanksgiving dessert table.

Great recipe, however, my cranberries were super tart so I ended up picking around most of them while eating this. Don't know if this is normal for cranberries. I know they're relatively tart anyways, but mine just seemed way too sour. Some of them unbearably so. That said... I, like the other reviewers mixed the apples, sugar, cornstarch and cranberries together. Just makes more sense to do it that way. Next time I make this, I'll be changing the amount of cranberries to only a cup or maybe even just half a cup. Overall, really good and everyone that tried it liked it. A nice variation on apple pie. And for those curious…I used gala apples.

Delicious! I added about 1/4 cup of coarsely chopped walnuts and about 1/2 tsp of orange zest. Even my picky mother liked it.
