- 6 tart apples, such as Granny Smith or Northern Spies, peeled, seeded and diced
- 1/2 cup dried sweetened cranberries (a couple of handfuls)
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- Juice of 1 lemon
- A pinch of salt
- 1 pie dough
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 4 ceramic or oven-safe individual glass bowls or large ramekins
Pre-heat the oven to 400ºF.
In a mixing bowl, combine the apples, cranberries, brown sugar, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and salt.
Roll out the pie dough and cut out four rounds that are slightly larger than the mouth of the baking dishes. Fill the dishes with the apple mixture. Top each ramekin with a round of pie dough and crimp the edges with the tines of a fork. Brush the crust with the egg wash.
Transfer the baking dishes to a baking sheet. Bake until the crust is golden brown and the apples are tender, about 20-30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature plain or topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
