Does anyone know how to make a cranberry pie? I have cranberries in the freezer and would like to use them.
By Joyce wis from Janesville, Wis.
Here's an Apple-Cranberry pie that is really good.
Apple Cranberry Walnut Pie
1 recipe Flaky Pastry
1 egg beaten lightly with 1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup plain cracker or corn flake crumbs
4 large Granny Smith or Greening apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 1/2 tablespoons flour
1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1-cup cranberries, fresh or frozen (not defrosted)
2 tablespoons butter cut up
1 Prepare pastry. Roll out 1 portion to 12-inch circle and ease into
10-inch Pyrex pie plate. (Refrigerate remaining pastry until ready to use.) Brush egg glaze over pastry in pie plate, then sprinkle with crumbs. Set aside.
2. Toss apples along with brown sugar, lemon juice, flour, cinnamon nutmeg, walnuts and cranberries in large bowl. Spoon mixture into crust and dot with butter.
3 Roll out remaining pastry. Cut into 12 (3/4- inch wide) strips. Arrange strips, 6 in each direction, lattice-fashion, over top. Brush egg glaze between ends of lattice strips and bottom crust edge. Fold over edges and crimp. Brush pastry top with glaze, then sprinkle with a little granulated sugar.
4. Set pie on rack in lower third of oven. Bake at 425 degrees 15 minutes. Lower heat to 350 degrees, raise pie to center rack and bake 40 to 45 minutes longer or until golden brown. Check pies crust about halfway through baking time and add foil edging to prevent over-browning. Cool on wire rack.
What does "frac" mean? Thanks
<b>Editor's Note:</b> Some times when fractions are posted on our web site they are not displayed properly and show up as "frac". I have "guesstimated" on the post below.
