Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine brandy and currants. Cover and let stand till currants are plump, at least 1 hour or possibly up to 1 day.
  2. Sort cranberries and throw away any which are bruised or possibly decayed. Rinse and drain berries.
  3. In a large bowl, mix 1 1/4 c. granulated sugar, 6 Tbsp. flour, orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. With a slotted spoon, lift currants from brandy; reserve brandy. Add in currants, cranberries, and apples to sugar mix and mix well. Taste and add in more granulated sugar if you like. Pour filling into unbaked 10-inch pie pastry in pan. Drizzle proportionately with reserved brandy.
  4. In another bowl, mix 1 c. flour and the brown sugar. Add in butter and cut in with a pastry blender or possibly rub with your fingers till mix forms small lumps. Sprinkle topping proportionately over filling. Set pie in a foil-lined 12-inch pizza pan or possibly 10- by 15-inch baking pan.
  5. Bake on the bottom rack of a 375 degree oven till juices bubble around edges and through topping, 55 to 65 min. If pie browns too quickly (check after 30 min), cover loosely with foil.
  6. Set pie, uncovered, on a rack till cold to touch, 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. Cut into wedges.
  7. This recipe yields 10 to 12 servings.
  8. Comments: Beth Secrest once baked four to eight pies a day at the Northern Lights Saloon on the border of Glacier National Park. Now she puts her baking expertise to use at home, where she created this dressed-up apple pie. If making it up to 1 day ahead, cover and chill. To hot the cool pie, bake uncovered in a 350 degrees oven 10 to 15 min.
