Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
• Refrigerated pie crust
• 6 gala apples
• ½ stick butter
• 2 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon nutmeg
• 2 cups fresh cranberries
• 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Dice apples and sauté them over medium heat in large skillet with butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add in lemon juice. Cook apples until the spices are absorbed, or they turn golden brown. Add cranberries for two minutes, just until they soften and start to release their red color. Spoon the apple-cranberry mixture into four small, greased ramekins, until three quarters full.
- On a lightly-floured surface, roll out pie dough. Use a knife to slice thin strips for a latticed crust. Drape five strips over the filling, placing each a quarter inch apart. Gently fold every other strip back on itself, a little past the center. Take a long strip and lay it perpendicular to the other strips. Place the strips you folded earlier back on the new strip, pulling every other strip back over the top as you go. Trim any leftover dough hanging off the edges of the ramekin.
- Brush the crust with a light egg wash and cook until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Serve warm.
