Celebrate Pi Day with this delicious pie!

This pie is all made from scratch so get ready for a real hands on experience. It was my first time baking one and it turned out wonderful, so don't be intimidated. I love to cook so I just mixed a few things together that I knew worked well. Each bite of this pie is a different experience every time, you'll get some tartness, some sweetness, and some spice. 

Here are is list of ingredients you'll need:

4 Large Granny Smith Apples about 1.5 lbs 
1 cup dried Cranberries
2 cups  rinsed and drained fresh or thawed frozen mixed berries
1/4 cup Brandy
1 cup  sugar
5 cups + 6 Tbsp of all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp grated orange zest
3/4 tsp fresh ground cinnamon sticks
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
10-inch pie baking dish
1 cup (4 sticks) butter

Step 1: Start with a Clean Work Area

A clean work area is highly recommended!

Step 1: Organize your ingredients and put them to one side, something I would recommend is to take only what you need and put it in a small dish. For example.. instead of having a big bag of flour, take your 3cups and put it in a small bowl so you don't waste counter space. 

Step 2: You don't have to, but I washed my apples along with all my cookware/measuring utensils. Some of my baking dishes has small dust particles due to storage. 

Step 3: Wipe down your countertop and or cutting board. 
It really looks soooooo yummy.
