Pie A Week Challenge Week 1
One of my goals for this year is to bake one pie a week. I have been having a very tumultuous beginning to this year so I was really looking forward to some baking time. I wound up squeezing it in last night. I decided to start the year with this recipe from Whole Living. I couldn't find any fresh or frozen cranberries in my neighborhood so I wound up having to double the amount of dried cranberries. Here is my finished product:
Overall this wasn't a difficult recipe which is a plus for a the first one of the year. I like the mix of flavors. However I do feel that it was a bit too tart. If I ever make this pie again I would go for a more mellow apple to even out the tartness. As it is I need to eat this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to try to balance the flavor. I think I'll keep this recipe for the future.
