This pie is the best, and turned out perfectly even with minimal pie baking experience. I substituted Jonagold for Granny Smith apples and fresh blueberries for the cranberries.
This is probably my favorite pie, great combination of flavours with the apple, cranberry and crystallized ginger. I have made it many times and the only reason I give it a 4 rather than 5 is because the pie crust is always tough by time the pie is cooked.
Made this last night for Thanksgiving. Liked the tart sweetness after a rich meal. The crust was too crisp so would try not pre-baking it next time. Also will up the candied ginger so there is more throughout the pie. Used granny smith apples from our tree and did not add the 6Tbs sugar to the apples. There was a lot of streusel topping and would like more texture so think I will keep the same amount of nuts but use only 3/4 of the flour/sugar mixture. Going to make these changes for our Sunday after Thanksgiving dinner with friends.
This is the best pie I've ever tasted and my family won't stop talking about how goot it was! It's a wonderful addition to our usual Thanksgiving family tradition.
