This is an apple pie recipe my mother has had for years. Once I see the fresh cranberries in the supermarket near Christmas, I love to add them to this pie! Use your favourite pastry recipe or supermarket shortcrust pastry.
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. - 05 Nov 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 28 Nov 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 30 Dec 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
