Smart Shopping Tips
  • Whenever cooking with apples, choose firm, tart apples such as Granny Smith, Jonagold or Braeburn. These apples are often a little larger than eating apples and they maintain their texture when cooked.
  • Cranberries can be purchased in season and frozen for later use. Store in plastic bags for up to a year.
  • Berries should be sorted and washed before use. Discard shriveled, mushy or discolored berries.
Cooking & Serving Tips:
  • One teaspoon of apple pie spice blend can be used instead of the spices listed in the recipe.
  • Serve with a scoop of frozen yogurt.
  • Sprinkle top of crust with a little cinnamon and sugar before baking.
