Take a bite, dearie!
This Apple Pie will make all the menfolks’ mouth water. Another quote from the Evil Queen and one of my favorites. Despite the name, this recipe does not actually have poison in it. And anyone that falls in love with you after making it, is sure coincidence. The cranberries are a tart twist to a classic apple pie. Hope you enjoy it for a Snow White Movie Night or crisp Fall evening.
Poison Apple Pie
4 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and diced
12oz fresh cranberries
Juice from one lemon
2 tsp pie spice
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Two pie crusts
Preheat oven to 425°. Line pie plate with one pie crust and set aside. Pour lemon juice over diced apples and stir to prevent browning.
In a medium saucepan, bring cranberries, one cup of apples, sugar, water, and pie spice to a boil over medium heat. Then lower heat and simmer until thickened and the berries have popped, about 10-15 minutes.
Remove from heat and add dried cranberries and remaining apples. Let filling cool while preparing the crust.
Lay second pie crust on working area. Using a picture reference and a knife, free hand the Poison Apple face to the pie crust. It doesn’t have to be perfect! Paint the crust with egg wash.
Turn pie filling into pastry lines pie plate and then carefully place crust on top. Fold and pinch pie crusts together. Cover edges with aluminum foil or pie crust protector shield.
Bake for 30 minutes, remove crust shield and bake for additional 15 minutes.
Serve warm if desired.
