Apple pie has always been an American favorite. We love the smell of baking apples here at Grape Arbor in muffins, coffeecakes…but everyone loves apple pie! We change it up just a little bit with the addition of fresh cranberries for a pop of red and a little tartness.
We always like to use several different kinds of apples for more flavor and texture. Granny Smiths are a good choice because they hold their shape and are on the tart side. Add in some Galas, Golden Delicious or McIntosh–use your favorites! This pie is not super sweet, if you like it sweeter, just add a little more sugar.
Do not skip the chilling instructions for the crust or the pie, it ensures a crisp, no soggy crust!
