“This is my adopted recipe Feb 2005. I made this today and love the flavor of apples and cranberries together. I used Granny Smith apples but I think any good cooking apple will do. This makes a lot, it would make 2 smaller pies, like the disposable foil pie plates you buy. I made it in a 9 1/2″ deep dish pie plate and it did boil out a bit into the oven. My DH likes his apples in pies really soft so I put the apples and apple juice mixed with cornstarch and the sugar in a 4 quart Pyrex bowl and microwaved it for about 5 minutes. I thawed out the cranberries and then mixed with the apple mixture along with the corn syrup. Let cool slightly before filling pie.”
