step-by-step directions
  • For the Flaky Pie Crust:
  • Combine Water, Salt, and Sugar in measuring cup. Stir and place cup in fridge for at least 15 min. (to chill Water and to dissolve Sugar and Salt.) If possible, chill mixing bowl and paddle attachment if possible.
  • Combine Flour and Butter pieces in mixing bowl. On medium speed, cut Butter into Flour until Butter pieces are the size of small pebbles. With the mixer running, pour the Water into the Butter Mixture. Mix until the dough comes together.
  • Separate the dough into 2 disks. Wrap each with film and chill.
  • Roll chilled pastry dish out to fit a 9-inch pie dish. Prick all over dough with a fork. Bake on 375°F for 10-15 minutes, or until it is lightly golden. Set aside to cool.
  • For the Apple Cranberry Filling:
  • In a large bowl, combine Apples and Cranberries (frozen and dried) then stir in Salt, Sugars, Nutmeg, and Cinnamon. Stir in the Zest and Juice of 1 Lemon.
  • In a small bowl, combine Water, Cornstarch, and Vanilla. Quickly stir mixture into Apples. Adjust seasoning if desired.
  • Fill pie dish with Apple Filling.
  • For the Crumble Topping:
  • Place all the topping ingredients into food processor and process until Butter has been cut into the mixture.
  • Sprinkle topping over top of pie filling.
  • Bake at 375°F for 35 minutes.
