  • 1 Two Crust Pie Shell I used one from the dairy case
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 pounds tart cooking apples peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices (5- 1/2 cups)
  • 2 cups cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons butter cut into small pieces
  • Milk
  • Sugar or coarse sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts


  • Prepare and roll out Two Crust Pie Shell pastry. Line a 9-inch pie plate with half of the pastry.
  • In a small bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. In a large bowl combine the apples, cranberries (reserving 1 cranberry for the garnish) and 1/2 cup walnuts. Sprinkle sugar mixture over the fruit. Toss to combine. Spoon mixture into pastry-lined pie plate. Dot with butter.
  • Cut slits in remaining pastry to allow steam to escape. Place pastry on filling. Trim both overhangs to an even 1 inch all the way around. Tuck the crusts under and flute the edges. Lightly brush pastry with a little milk and sprinkle with additional sugar. Cut a slit in center of pastry; place the 1 reserved cranberry in slit. Sprinkle the 1 tablespoon walnuts around the cranberry. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil.
  • Place pie plate on middle shelf in oven; place foil-lined baking sheet on lower rack beneath pie. Bake in a 325 degrees F. oven for 1 hour. Remove foil. Bake 30 to 45 minutes more or until fruit is tender, filling is bubbly and crust is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack at least 2 hours before serving. Makes 8 servings.
