    1 teaspoon lemon juice

    1 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Vanilla Extract 

    1 cup cranberries (if frozen, thawed)

    4 cups peeled and sliced Granny Smith apples

     

    FOR ASSEMBLY:

    1 teaspoon milk

    1 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Organic, Fair Trade Cane Sugar

    1/4 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Ground Cinnamon

    1/4 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Ground Cardamom

     

Directions

    FOR THE CRUST:

    1. Sift flour and salt into a large bowl. Stir in orange peel.

    2. Using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut in butter cubes until pea-sized crumbs are formed.

    3. Add water, one tablespoon at a time, until dough is moist enough to hold together.

    4. Gather dough into a ball and use a large knife to cut into two halves. Roll out each dough half into a 10-inch round, approximately 1/8-inch thick.


    FOR THE FILLING: 

    1. Combine cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, cloves, salt, sugar, and flour in a large bowl with a fork.

    2. Mix in lemon juice and vanilla extract.

    3. Toss cranberries and apples into mixture.



    ASSEMBLY:

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

    2. Line a 9-inch pie pan with one of the crusts. Use a knife along the edge of the pan to cut away excess dough.

    3. Pour apple and cranberry mixture into lined pan.

    4. Top mixture with second crust. Use a knife to cut crust along the edge of the pan, then pinch the top and bottom crusts together.

    5. Crimp crust edges together using your thumb and two fingers. Use a sharp knife to cut steam vents in top crust.

    6. Brush crust with milk.

    7. To make topping, combine sugar with cinnamon and cardamom. Sprinkle over crust.

    8. Bake for about 1 hour, until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly.

    9. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
