About this recipe: A delicious change from the classic apple pie. Shortcrust pastry encases a wonderful filling of apples, cranberries, brandy and allspice. Enjoy with cream, custard or ice cream.
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 US | 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 US | 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 US | Canada)
