  • 1 apple diced
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 Tablespoon flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 egg yolk + 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 package of 2 pre-made pie crust


  • In a saucepan combine apples, cranberries, flour, salt, water, lemon juice, brown sugar, and spices. Bring to a bubble until the liquid in the pan starts to thicken.
  • Cook for about 10 minutes until the apples start to break down.
  • Preheat the oven to 425
  • Unroll both pie crusts and cut out 10 round pieces from each pie crust. I ended up cutting about 6 then rolled up the dough, re-rolled it out and cut out 4 more.
  • Repeat with the second pie crust.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment and line up 6 pieces of dough. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of filling to each bottom piece.
  • Sprinkle a few slivered almonds on each.
  • Add another round piece of dough and press the edges down with a fork to seal. Repeat until all pies are made.
  • In a small bowl combine the egg yolk with a splash of water. Brush on the top of the pies and top with a few more slices of almond.
  • Bake according to the pie crust instructions. Enjoy!
