Madly in Love

This pie is made with granny smith apples, cranberries and black berries. It's definitely in my top five of favorite pies because it's let's just say.... delicious! In all modesty when you mix those ingredients together baked in a buttery flakey crust, the result is, well it's YUM, and with a name like Madly in Love, you can't go wrong.

My inspiration for this pie is actually the result of two close friends who I love dearly who are madly in love with each other. The pie was made and named in honor of them. Primarily because I have always loved the combination of apples and cranberries period. I guess you can say I am also Madly in Love with this pie.
Traditionally I made this pie with hearts to garnish the outside of the crust and to add more presentation to the name. This is a picture of the very first time I made this pie. I actually wasn't satisfied that the top opening of the pie revealed some of the sugar I used. I wanted the presentation to be a little bit better. The second time I made this pie I actually put all the cranberries on the top center which made it look cuter but the end result as far as taste was not the result I had hoped for. Primarily because the apples and black berries were separated instead of mixed together.

Enjoy, and here's to everyone out there who is madly in love, just as I am with this pie.
