Apple Pie with Cranberries


Apple Pie with Cranberries Recipe

While apple and cranberries complement each other in taste, season and glowing colors, sometimes the consistency isn't quite right. Cooking the berries, sugar and orange peel with flour to thicken before pouring over the apples gives the pie a better texture and flavor.
