Apple and Cranberry Pie

“This simple easy-to-make pie combines my two favorite fall fruits -- cranberries and apples, but don't expect your typical sweet apple pie -- this is more tart than you may expect, but delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (July 1985)”
1hr 5mins
1 9inch pie
