Cranberry Apple Pie

Happy Pi day everyone! Yes, I’m a nerd and celebrate Pi day with a pie. Hey, what do you expect from an engineer who bakes?!? It is quite the shame that National Pie Day doesn’t fall on 3/14. Doesn’t make any sense to me…

I had bookmarked this pie back around Thanksgiving when cranberries were plentiful. I always grab a few extra bags to throw in the freezer and use at a later date. I decided to pull out one of those bags of frozen crans to make this pie.

Cranberry and apple make such a great team. They just compliment each other so well. And in the case of this pie, the cranberries turned the pie filling into a pretty pink color.

If you happen to have any cranberries around, I highly recommend making this pie. Or save it off in your back pocket when the fall flavors of Thanksgiving are swirling around in your head.

Cranberry Apple Pie

Yield: 8

Ingredients:

Double pie crust

1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp flour
1/4 tsp salt
4 medium Granny Smith apples
2 cups fresh cranberries
zest of one orange
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, cubed

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425. Line the bottom of a glass pie pan with pie crust as directed above. Brush with lightly beaten egg white.

Stir together the sugar, flour and salt.

Peel, core and slice the apples.

Add the apple slices, cranberries and orange zest to the sugar mixture and toss well. Pile into the prepared pie pan. Top with bits of butter.

Cover the pie with the top crust and vent as desired. Brush with the beaten egg white.

Bake for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 and bake 40-50 minutes more, until the fruit is tender when pierced with a knife. (Check the crust periodically and tent with foil if it browns before cooking through.)

Cool on a cooling rack.

    Oh how funny, I do believe this is my recipe from awhile ago, but someone turned them into mini brownies! Glad you liked them! 🙂

    I empathize with your baking addiction and apologize for being a food stalker – I actually made the brownies for work today! The funny thing is that a coworker forwarded me the link to your blog and these brownies yesterday and I was pleased to tell her that I was already a devoted fan.
