Rustic Apple and Dried Cranberry Pie

Recipe by Vino Girl
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • PASTRY: Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor with a metal chopping blade; pulse to mix.
  • Add butter and shortening and pulse 5-8 more times until the mixture looks like coarse oatmeal.
  • Sprinkle with 1/2 the water and pulse.
  • Gradually add in more of the water in the same manner until the dough holds together when pinched with your fingertips (you may not need all of it).
  • On a floured surface, form the dough into a ball and then flatten into a disk.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and for up to 3 days.
  • FILLING: Toss apples, cranberries, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, and spices together in a large bowl; set aside.
  • BAKING AND ASSEMBLY: Preheat oven to 400°F Roll dough on a floured surface to make a 15 inch circle.
  • Fold dough into quarters; place on a large baking sheet and unfold.
  • Place filling in the center of the pastry, leaving a 2 1/2 border all around.
  • Fold the pastry border over the filling (I fold this in several small sections- some pieces of the crust will overlap each other, and this is just how it should be; remember that it's a rustic pie).
  • Brush pastry with egg white and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Pull oven rack out so you can get to the pie; cover the pie with foil and bake for 15 more minutes.
  • Cool on baking sheet on a wire rack.
  • Cover and store pie at room temperature.
