Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place 2 cups flour in a bowl. Cut butter and cream cheese into flour using a knife or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gently mix water into flour mixture until dough forms into a ball.

  • Mix apples and cranberries with brown sugar, white sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl until coated.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.

  • Roll dough onto a lightly floured work surface, forming about an 11-inch circle. Transfer dough to the prepared baking sheet. Arrange apple-cranberry mixture decoratively on the dough, leaving a 2-inch rim of exposed dough. Sprinkle walnuts over apple-cranberry mixture. Fold exposed crust up and over the edge of the fruit.

  • Brush egg over the crust and around the edge of the tart; sprinkle with raw sugar.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crust is browned and filling is tender, 30 to 35 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Cutting the butter and cream cheese into the flour can also be done in a food processor: pulse the cold butter into the flour until the mixture resembles cornmeal. Add the cream cheese and pulse until it's the size of small peas.

This one is a keeper! I made it exactly as written and the flavors were perfect! I did bake it a bit longer more like 45 minutes until the crust was nicely browned. Served this warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yum! Read More

I liked this and will make it again. I mixed apples and pears in equal portions. The apples overshadowed the pears a bit. I would add a green apple next time; I added a little lemon juice to increase the acidity. I used a store bought crust for time, but next time I will make the crust from scratch. Read More

Delicious beautiful. Mine came out a little dry... might either cut out the flour or add more sugar next time? Also I'll roll the crust a little thinner. But overall gorgeous presentation and delicious. I used Jonagold apples and only had dried cranberries. Read More

I had homemade pie dough in the freezer so I used that instead of making the cream cheese pastry in this recipe. Red delicious apples cooked down and paired with the cranberries to have a nice sweet-tart balance. Since I had no walnuts on hand I used pecans and it turned out delicious! As other reviewers noted it did take longer to bake than listed in the recipe (50 minutes to bake in my counter-top oven). I will be making this again and might even throw a whole cup of cranberries in to give it a bit of added tartness. Read More

Every year we look for something special to made for the holidays.Made this with my daughters today. It came out perfectly even the crust. I also found that it needed about 45 minutes to bake. Other than that I believe we have our winner. Read More

The only hard part in making this is blending the flour/butter/cream cheese. Takes some arm muscle. Other than that, this is super easy and really yummy. I use whatever fruit I have on hand. This time I threw in blueberries too. Love this and so does everyone I serve it to as well. Thank you!! Read More
