Most of the winter it is closed. Eventually you arrive in Aspen, Colorado after your wind around and around the mountains. This brings me to ASPEN MULLING SPICES which are produced there! They are wonderful and they gave this recipe out to promote their cider mix.
You will love this pie! You need: 1 cup of Aspen Mulling Spices, 4 Tb cornstarch,1/2 tsp salt, 3/4 cup of corn syrup, 1/4 cup water, 1 1/2 cup cranberries, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 1 1/2 cup pared and chopped apples, 2 Tb butter, and 2 crust pie pastry.
Combine Aspen Mulling Spices, cornstarch, and salt in a large saucepan. Over low heat, add corn syrup and water. Cook, stirring until mix thickens and starts to boil. Add cranberries and cook until the skins pop. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a 9" pie plate with pastry. Combine apples and nuts and add to cranberry mixture. Spoon into pie shell. Dot with butter. Arrange top crust. Pierce top crust and bake 45 minutes.
