This is a recipe that you can adjust to suit your taste buds. When we have Mock Cherry Pie which is a combination of cranberries and raisins it is less sweet than this. I played with this first try to make the cranberry and apple combination; and I had dates and wanted to use honey instead of granulated sugar. Then I thought vanilla would make it a bit mellow and ginger was a last minute addition. I was pleased with the combination. It's the first time I've ever used the organic pastry flour and the crust was very tender.The baking time is 20 mins.with pie weights, and 20 mins. without them

How to Make Cranberry Apple Tart

Step-by-Step

  1. Prior to making the filling the pastry tart can be prepared and blind baked. I did that using parchment paper and pie weights to keep the crust from puffing up. I used a tart baking dish and the recipe from Arrowhead Mills Organic Pastry Flour.
  2. Place the cranberries and about 1/2 cup water and honey in a small pot, over medium heat, and cook while stirring until berries pop. Lower the heat if it boils fast, and simmer about five or six minutes stirring frequently with a wooden spoon.
  3. Add chopped apples and chopped dates and cook until softened, another five or ten minutes. It should thicken as it cooks and will as it cools too.
  4. Stir in the vanilla and powdered ginger. Let cool for a while, and fill the baked tart and spread evenly, then cover with parchment paper and chill for about an hour, or overnight. We loved it served with real whipped cream!
