Winter Berry Pie

January 9, 2014

Today’s post is written by my sister Maria.
Over Christmas I spent a lot of time in the Kitchen. My family’s best moments are all around the dinner table over a good meal, and I find that the time and effort I put into the food we prepare is well worth the happy moments they contribute to. This is the pie we had for Christmas dinner, and can be made throughout the the season as a winter warmer:)

Winter Berry Pie
9 inch two crust pie OR 1 box of ready made pie crust

4 cups of thinly sliced and peeled cooking apples
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries.
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2 Tbs. cold butter
Top Crust:
1 egg
1/2 Cup cream or milk
Heat oven to 425. Line pie dish with pastry. I usually take a fork and poke a few holes in the bottom of the crust. I don’t know why – I just learned that way…
For the Filling: 
In a large bowl, whisk sugars, flour and spices together. Add apples and cranberries and stir together to coat them well. Pour into pie crust. You can arrange fruit so it forms a higher mound at top. Cut 2 Tbs. of butter into small squares and dot over fruit filling.
Place top crust over pie (see perfect pie crust in 10 steps if using homemade crust).
For a pretty top crust, beat an egg with the milk and brush over the top of the pie crust. Sprinkle top with sugar. Make sure to cover edges of crust with foil or pie crust protector so the edges don’t over brown. You can remove the last 15 minutes of baking.
Bake in oven for 50-55 minutes or until juices are bubbling out top. (always a good sign).
Baking a fresh homemade pie is a lost art, takes time ,and isn’t something you do on a regular basis, but it will make any dinner or gathering extra special and memorable when you do! ~Maria

  • Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that
    I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Kudos!

  • Normally I do not read post on blogs, however I wish to
    say that this write-up very pressured me to take a look at
