Cooking: 1 hour
Additional Time: 3 hours
Total: 7 hours



  • homemade pie crust
  • 3large apples,cored, peeled, and sliced into ½-inch slices
  • cupscranberries,fresh or frozen
  • ¾cupgranulated sugar
  • 2tbspcornstarch
  • 1tbsporange zest
  • 2tspground cinnamon
  • ¼tspground cloves
  • ¼tspground nutmeg
  • 2tbspunsalted butter,cold and cubed
  • 1large egg,beaten with milk



  1. Stir the apples, cranberries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, orange zest, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Set filling aside as the oven preheats.

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

To roll out the chilled pie dough:

  1. On a floured work surface, roll out one of the discs of chilled dough. Turn the dough about a quarter turn after every few rolls until you have a circle 12 inches in diameter.

  2. Carefully place the dough into a 9×2-inch pie dish. Tuck it in with your fingers, making sure it is smooth. Spoon the filling into the crust, leaving any excess liquid in the bowl.

  3. Dot the pieces of butter on top of the filling. Stick in the refrigerator until ready to cut the lattice.

To arrange the lattice:

  1. Remove the other disc of chilled pie dough from the refrigerator. Roll the dough into a circle that is 12 inches in diameter.

  2. Using a pastry wheel, sharp knife, pizza cutter, or this fun ribbon cutter, cut strips 1 or 2 inches wide.

  3. Remove the pie from the refrigerator and carefully thread the pie dough strips over and under one another, pulling back strips as necessary to weave.

  4. Press the edges of the strips into the bottom pie crust edges to seal. Use a small knife to trim off excess dough. Crimp the edges with a fork, if desired.

  5. Lightly brush the top of the pie crust with the egg wash mixture.

  6. Place the pie onto a large baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Keeping the pie in the oven, turn the temperature down to 350 degrees F, and bake for an additional 30 to 35 minutes.

  7. After the first 20 minutes of bake time, place a pie crust shield on top of the pie to prevent the edges from browning too quickly.

  8. Allow the pie to cool for 3 full hours at room temperature before serving.
