Apple Cranberry Cake Pie

Is it a cake or is it a pie?  This is a new spin on Nantucket Pie, which occurred simply because my husband, Bob,  got carried away peeling apples for the Thanksgiving pie this year.  I had to do something with the extra apples, and I was not going to roll out another traditional piecrust.  I was thinking easy, and Nantucket Pie is easy.  So I got out my quiche dish and made this pie.

It is a yummy desert.  Bob requested this for Christmas Day, so I have put aside quilting for the day to make this pie.

The Ingredients are the same as for the Nantucket Pie … with the addition of the Apple Pie filling , so if you want to make Nantucket Pie, skip the apple pie filling!

Pie Filling:
2 cups whole cranberries
½ cup sugar
½  cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Apple Pie Filling:
2 apples (Macintosh, Cortland, or one of each)
¼ cup brown sugar
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. ginger
¼ tsp. nutmeg
¼ tsp. clove
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. corn starch

Batter:
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
6 Tbs. melted margarine
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Peel, core and slice up apples.  Mix the brown sugar, vanilla a spices together and mix in with the apples.  Place apples in a buttered and floured quiche dish.

Pour cranberries on top of the apples.  Add 1/2 cup of sugar (and nuts if desired).

Bake in 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes.  If you have included the apples cover the pie with aluminum foil and bake for another 15 minutes to ensure the apples are cooked enough and to thicken the filling!
