How to Make Cranberry and Apple Pie

  • Put the orange rind and juice in a bowl. Peel and remove the core from the apples. Grate them into the bowl.
  • Stir in cranberries, raisins, walnuts, sugar, brown sugar and flour.
  • Pre heat the oven to 400 F.
  • Roll out one ball of dough about 1/8 inch thick.
  • Transfer to a 9 inch pie pan and trim.
  • Spoon the cranberry and apple mixture into the case.
  • Roll out the remaining dough into a circle and with a serrated pastry wheel or a knife cut the dough into 10 strips.
  • Place 5 strips horizontally across the top of the tart at 1 inch intervals.
  • Weave in the remaining 5 and trim.
  • Sprinkle sugar on the top.
  • Bake for 20 min.
  • Reduce the heat to 350 F and bake until crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling for about 15-20 min more.
