TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 large apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice; add the cranberries, raisins and walnuts. Combine the brown sugar, cornstarch, orange peel, cinnamon and nutmeg; add to apple mixture and toss gently to coat.
  • 2. Roll out pastry to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate; flute edges. Fill with apple mixture and dot with butter.
