Cranberry pie

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 c. whole cranberries, fresh or unthawed frozen
  • 1/2 c. plus 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 c. chopped walnuts
  • 2 1/2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp. orange zest
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • Pinch freshly ground nutmeg
  • Flour, for the surface
  • 1 recipe double-crust pie dough, 2 disks
  • 1 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 large egg white
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place 3 cups of the cranberries in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until they are slightly chopped. Transfer to a medium bowl and toss with the remaining 1 cup whole cranberries.
  2. Add 1⁄2 cup sugar, walnuts, cornstarch, zest, salt, and nutmeg and gently mix.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 disk of pie dough into a 12" round. Fit into the bottom and up the sides of a 9" pie plate. Spoon the cranberry mixture into the prepared crust and dot with the butter.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the remaining disk of dough and cut out 8 large triangles. Place over the cranberry filling, leaving space between. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 1 day.
  5. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg white with 2 tablespoons water. Brush all over the pie, then sprinkle with the remaining 2 teaspoons sugar.
  6. Bake the pie on the middle rack until the crust is just golden and the cranberry juices are bubbling, 40 to 45 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
