Here's a delicious idea from Janet Morgan-Cavallaro of Pincourt, Quebec—an old-fashioned apple dessert she enhanced with cranberries. "After I went apple picking with our daughter," she recalls. "I took a look at the bushels of fruit we brought home—then raced into our kitchen to try out new ideas, including my pie."—Janet Morgan-Cavallaro, Pincourt, Quebec
