The Pie Filling

I mixed in some cranberries for a little extra flavor.

3 pounds of crisp cooking apples such as Macintosh or Cortland
2/3 cup of light brown sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons apple cider (optional)
1/2 cup fresh cranberries (optional)
2 tablespoons of butter

Peel, core and slice the apples. Mix all the ingredients and toss together, except for the butter. Arrange in a 9 inch pie plate lined with pie crust. Dab the butter on top. Cover with top pie crust. Bake in a pre-heated 425oF oven for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350oF and bake for an additional 50 minutes.
