Simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes or until cranberries start to break down. Stir in 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour and transfer mixture to small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until completely cool, about 45 to 60 minutes. Stir in ½ cup cranberries.
Combine 6 cups peeled, thinly sliced tart apples, 1/3 cup sugar, ¼ cup all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg in a large bowl. Toss mixture gently to coat and let stand 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 F, and prepare pastry for a double-crust pie. Slightly flatten one pastry ball on a lightly floured surface. Roll pastry to be about 12 inches in diameter and carefully set into a 9-inch pie plate.
Strain excess liquid, if any, from cranberry mixture. Combine cranberry mixture with apple mixture. Add mixture to pie plate; trim pastry edges. Roll remaining pastry and cut into strips to make lattice top. Weave a lattice pattern over the filling.
Fold lower pastry over strip ends; seal and crimp edge. Combine 1 egg and 1 tablespoon water; brush over pastry. Cover edge of pie loosely with foil and bake on the middle rack for 30 minutes. Remove foil, and bake 35 to 40 minutes longer.Learn more about Desserts
