This pie recipe came from my sister-in-laws mom, Jeannie.
Here she is....
I just looked up this recipe for you, she gave it to me in 1996!
Could I even use an oven at that age???
On with the pie.
You bake it in the bag and it's magical when it's done.
This recipe is actually for an Apple Cranberry Pie but I forgot to buy cranberries so your just looking at an apple pie. I was too
I always make this for Christmas. It's so pretty, I will definitely share another picture when that time rolls around.
Have the best day ever!!
Apple-Cranberry Pie...in a bag
6 Cups Tart Apples, peeled and sliced small
1 Cup Cranberries
1 Cup Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 1/2 TBSP Flour
1/4 tsp Salt
1 TBSP Lemon Juice (Did you know that the lemon juice helps soften the apples when baking?)
1 Pie Crust ~ unbaked and pressed in pie tin.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients and place in pie pan. Place in fridge while you make topping.
1/2 Cup Cold Butter
1/2 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup White Sugar
Mix flour and sugar together with fork. Cut butter into this mixture until crumbly looking.
Take pie from fridge and spoon topping over pie.
Tuck pie in a brown paper bag. Paper clip bag shut. Spritz bag with water. Place the pie on a cookie sheet because it always drips over and who has time to clean their oven at Christmas?
Put in preheated oven being careful that sides of bag do not touch oven.
Bake 1 hour. When done, you cut it out of the bag.
It's just like a little present.
I still get excited after all these years!
