  • 3-4 medium Apples peeled and sliced (I used 3 Cortland and 1 Gala)
  • 1 1/2 c Cranberries chopped (you can use frozen or fresh)
  • 1 c Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Ginger
  • 1 Pie Crust see pg for my homemade crust!
  • 1 egg yolk
  • pinch of Salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. If using frozen cranberries remove them from the freezer and allow to thaw for 1-2 hours.
  3. Prepare pie crust and leave in fridge while you mix the pie filling.
  4. Sift together your brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Add vanilla and mix.
  5. Add apples and cranberries to sugar mixture and combine thoroughly.
  6. Add pie filling to your prepared crust and push down gently. If using my homemade crust you can add your top piece as a circle or cut into strips and weave like a lattice pattern (see photos).
  7. Whisk egg yolk and using a pastry brush gently brush the entire outer pie shell (this will give it a nice golden crust as it bakes)
  8. Bake pie on cookie sheet at 375 for about 20 minutes and then reduce heat to 350, bake until the apples are tender and crust is lightly brown (filling should be bubbling).
