Apple Cranberry Pie

Made by Jared Danks with Culinard

Adapted from: On Cooking: Chapter 32 (pp 969)

Yield: 2 ea Serving Size: 1/8 ea # of Servings: 16


2 lb Granny smith apple (peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch cubes)

light brown sugar 8 oz

granulated sugar 8 oz

Orange Zest 2 tbl

ground cinnamon 2 tsp

salt 1/2 tsp

cornstarch 1 tbl 1 tsp

Orange Juice (fresh) 6 fl oz

cranberries (rinsed) 1 lb

Basic Pie Dough 3 lb 8 oz


1. Combine the apples, brown sugar, granulated sugar, orange zest, cinnamon and salt in a large, nonreactive saucepan.

2. Dissolve the cornstarch in the orange juice and add it to the apples.

3. Cover and simmer until the apples begin to soften, stirring occasionally. Add the cranberries, cover and continue simmering until the cranberries begin to soften, approximately 2 minutes.

4. Place the apple-cranberry mixture in the pie shell and cover with the prepared Streusel Top-ping. Bake at 400°F (200°C) until the filling is bubbling hot and the topping is lightly browned, approximately 20 minutes.

Lattice Top:

Roll the dough out as before. Using a ruler as a guide, cut even strips of the desired width, typically 1⁄2 inch (1.2 centimeters). Using an over-under-over pattern, weave the strips together on top of the filling. Be sure the strips are evenly spaced for an attractive result.

Crimp the lattice strips to the bottom crust to seal.
