Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare and roll out Pastry for Single-Crust Pie and line 9-inch pie plate as directed.

  • For topping: In a medium mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in 2/3 cup flour (mixture will be crumbly.) Stir in walnuts. Set aside.

  • For filling: In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, cinnamon, vanilla, orange peel and nutmeg; set aside. In a large bowl, sprinkle apples with orange juice. Add sugar-cinnamon mixture and cranberries. Gently toss until coated.

  • Transfer apple mixture to the pastry-lined pie plate. Sprinkle the topping over apple mixture, mounding high (topping will be generous). To prevent overbrowning, loosely cover pie with foil. Place in a shallow baking pan.

  • Bake in a 375°F oven for 40 minutes. Remove foil. Bake 20 to 25 minutes more or until fruit is tender and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.
