That old-time apple cranberry pie

Another Thanksgivingish gathering. I was going to make a pumpkin tart, but when I was in the store I saw they had cranberries, and I remembered the apple cranberry pie, and thought it was time to do that again. So I made that, and it was well loved. There wasn't quite enough apple in it this time (I ran out, mostly due to inefficient coring technique—I need a proper apple corer) so it wasn't quite as glorious as last year's. But it was still really, really good. Everyone seemed to think it was going to be cherry or possibly rhubarb and was very surprised that it wasn't a sweet pie at all! Nita, who did most of the cooking for this party, pointed out how she grew up with tart pies, with the theory that the ice cream adds the sweetness. No one seemed to complain about the lack of ice cream, though.
