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.

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.

This pie has a refreshing tartness that is usually absent from the Thanksgiving table. It's not fussy and very versatile. Last night, instead of apples, I thawed some peaches that we froze last August. I also added 1/4 tsp. of cloves. Like another reviewer, I mixed the fruit, sugar, cornstarch and spices before adding to the pie. On a scale of 1 to 5, my husband gave it a 10.
