Description

Creating a fabulous apple pie is all about the details. For starters, not every apple holds up well to baking, so we went with two that do. Granny Smith has a beautiful tartness and keeps its shape, while Golden Delicious add sweetness and softens up a bit, helping to hold the green apple slices together. Then there’s flavor. Three kinds of spices and two of citrus add complexity, and cranberries bring in a pop of color and tartness. Finally, for beauty, and to prevent the slump that can occur in a baked apple pie between the top pastry crust and the filling, we precooked the apples just a little. (For best results with this technique, the fruit is cut in bigger pieces than you might be used to for apple pie.) The recipe is a Yummly original created by Elaine Johnson.

    Directions

    1. In a large bowl, stir together sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt to combine. Stir in orange juice and lemon juice. Add both kinds of apples and toss to coat.
    2. Scrape apple mixture into a 12-inch frying pan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until apples soften at edges but are still crisp in the middle, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cranberries and orange zest. Scrape mixture (including syrup) onto a sheet pan, let cool about 10 minutes, and then chill until cold, about 30 minutes.
    3. Set a rack on the lowest position in an oven and preheat oven to 425°.
