Apple-Cranberry Crisp Pie

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Ms B.

My love of cranberries led to me to adopted this recipe. I think that it is the perfect fall pie with the crisp tartness of the berries shining about the sweetness of the apples. Original poster's comments: "Found this in the Sunday paper in the coupon section and it's become a huge hit. I'm not usually a fan of cranberries, but I like the flavor of this pie! I hope you like it, too!"

This pie was a smash hit! It was the perfect consistency, and looked beautiful. However, I had to make a few modifications, according to Kittencalskitchen and recipe #148890: 1. I defrosted and slightly cooked the cranberries in the microwave, and added 2 tbsp of the cinnamon/flour/sugar/salt mixture to them. 2. I added 1 tbsp of lemon to the apple slices (I used granny smith). 3. I brushed the top of the bottom crust with one egg white to prevent it from getting soggy. 4. I dotted the pie with 1 tbsp of butter before adding the top crust. 5. I brushed the top crust with milk, and sprinkled it with 1 tbsp sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon. 6. I baked it at 425 for 15 min., then added a crust protector, and baked at 375 for 30 min. Hope this helps!
