Sky-High Apple-Cranberry Pie
Crowd-pleasing apple pie achieves Paul Bunyan proportions, calling for a mountainous five pounds of apples and a batch and a half of dough. Cranberries bring a hint of tartness to the apples' familiar sweetness.
As you're piling the apples in, you may think you have too many -- keep going. They elevate the top crust and will cook down. You'll need a large disk of dough for the top crust and a small one for the bottom. Make two batches of pate brisee: Resist the temptation to double the recipe (it won't work as well).
