The smell of Apple Pie in the kitchen is a wonderful thing and I love the recipe that has Aspen Mulling Spices, walnuts and cranberries in it. This is an easy pie that your family will love.
It screams FALL!
I am going to assume here that you have a basic recipe for a 2 crust pie shell - or just buy one at the grocery store. I use the old crisco one - I am sure on the can.
I have probably made this pie 1/2 dozen times so I think in the future I am going to decrease the amount of cranberries and increase the apples. Here is what you need: 1 carton Aspen Mulling Spices which is 1 cup, 4 Tb Cornstarch, 1/2 tsp salt, 3/4 cup of light corn syrup and 1/4 cup of water. The recipe calls for 1 1/2 cup chopped fresh cranberries (in future I am going to decrease to 1 cup), 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 1 1/2 cups chopped apples (increase to 3 for heaping pie) 2 Tb butter and of course the pie crust ingredients.
Preheat oven to 424 degrees. Combine the Aspen Mulling Spices, cornstarch and salt in a large saucepan. Over low heat, add corn syrup and water, Bring to a boil and add chopped cranberries. Keep on a low boil for 5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine chopped apples and chopped nuts and then add the heated cranberry mixture. Stir all together well and pour into the pie crust....dot with the 2 Tb butter and cover with the top layer of dough. Cut slits in the top and brush with milk. Sprinkle with sugar.
Bake 45 minutes at 425 degrees.
