Cranberry Apple Pie

    1 hour 15 minutes

    I love adding dried cranberries into my otherwise fairly traditional apple pie; you can make your own pastry or buy it pre-made.

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Position oven rack in the bottom third of the oven.
    2. In a medium bowl, toss together the dried cranberries, sugar, flour and allspice. Mix in the apples, brandy and vanilla.
    3. Place one pastry sheet in a round pie dish so that it hangs 5cm over the edges. Pour filling into the pie shell and cover with top pastry sheet. Seal and flute the edges. Cut slits in the top using a small knife.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden.

    One pound of apples equals 2 large, 3 medium, or 4 small apples. You need 4.5 large apples, or 6.75 medium, or 9 small apples for this recipe.  -  23 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This pie was outstanding. I didn't have any brandy (imagine that, I'm from Wisconsin) so I added Kahlua instead. I didn't have allspice so I added cinnamon and nutmeg. I used a combination of Rome and Jonathon apples. I made one with a double crust and another with a crumb topping. Both were delicious. I was afraid the dried cranberries (Craisons) would be too chewy but they were just perfect and a delicious addition.  -  30 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used Fresh Cranberries and a little more spice. The apples were fresh frozen and I left the peel on, my Father-in-law loved this pie. Try putting a little cinn. in the crust too  -  24 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
