Fresh Apple Cranberry Pie (Yummly/A Bountiful Kitchen, Si 11/12/2009 - Melissa)
11/2019 Uses sugar and hydrogenated shortening. Melissa felt the crust recipe had too much water in recipe and ended up adding a lot of flour to try to correct the problem --She also seemed to insist on using all the crust - too thick and not flaky at all. I don't know how to suggest it, but M could use some mentoring on the double crust making - esp on how to trim excess and crimp -- The choice of apples needed to be tarter. I would like to try substituting the sugar with something like Stevia.
"Of all the pies I make at holiday time, Fresh Apple Cranberry Pie is our family favorite. Itís fresh, tart and sweet. Love the hint of almond flavor. What would Thanksgiving be without PIE? I donít even want to go there.
You know how I love this holiday weekend. Family, friends, time to reflect on all of our blessings. Throw in football -the UTAH 8-1 (yay!) vs byu 7-2 game, food, the family turkey bowl, shopping. Love it. Making special food for the people I love is my favorite part. Baking PIE is my absolute favorite."
Nothing compares to this Fresh Apple Cranberry Pie! It has been on our Thanksgiving menu for over 20 years and continues to be on the top most requested dishes I make at holiday time. We also have this pie every Christmas as well.
