Cranberry Apple Pie
Preparation time: 20 minutes. Baking time: 45–50 minutes.

Ingredients
1 refrigerated piecrust (such as Pillsbury refrigerated piecrust)
4 large baking apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1 cup sweetened, dried cranberries
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 cup Splenda sweetener
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup Splenda
1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/3 cup reduced-calorie stick margarine, cut into smallpieces (do not soften)

Directions
Topping:

1 – Preheat oven to 400°F. Unfold piecrust and press out fold lines. Fit crust into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate according to package directions. Combine Apples, Cranberries, Lemon Zest, Splenda, 3 tablespoons flour, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Ginger in a large bowl; toss gently to mix well. Add applesauce and toss to coat. Spoon mixture into piecrust, piling up apples (they will shrink down with baking).

2 – In a separate bowl, combine 3/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup Splenda, light-brown sugar, and margarine. Mix by mashing with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle topping evenly over apple filling and press on to cover pie. Bake 45–50 minutes, or until apples are tender; cover edges of piecrust with aluminum foil to prevent over-browning if necessary. Allow pie to cool at least one hour before serving. This is a thick pie, so it makes a lot of servings.

Yield: 12 servings.

Serving size: 1/12 of pie.
