Cranberry-Apple Pie- Ann Pillsbury's Baking Book

This recipe comes from Ann Pillsbury's Baking Book. This is a Pocket Books, small paperback book size edition. The copyright is 1950 for the text and 1961 for this edition. It amazes me how many recipes they could fit in to these small size editions. I have quite a few of them and they all have hundreds of recipes.The comment on this recipe is "After testing this pie in our kitchen, we can't help feeling that apples and cranberries belong together.

Cranberry-Apple Pie

Pastry for a 2 crust pie
4 cups sliced apples, pared
2 1/2 cups cranberries
1/2 cup water
1 3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon orange rind
2 tablespoons butter
Cook the apples in the water until partially tender. Combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Blend with the apples. Add the cranberries and orange rind and cook until apples are tender and cranberries start to pop. Blend in butter. Cool. Line a 9-inch pie pan with half of the pastry. Turn the filling into the pan. Roll and cut the rest of the pastry into strips. Place the strips in a lattice pattern over the filling; seal edges and flute. Bake in 435 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
