Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425°.

  • Combine first 5 ingredients in a large saucepan. Stir in diced apple and cranberries; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until cranberries pop; stir occasionally. Remove from heat; cool.

  • Combine 1/4 cup flour and ice water, stirring with a whisk until well-blended; set aside. Combine 1 1/4 cups flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar, and salt in a bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add ice water mixture; mix with a fork until flour mixture is moist. Gently press two-thirds of flour mixture into a 4-inch circle on heavy-duty plastic wrap; cover with additional plastic wrap. Repeat procedure with remaining flour mixture. Roll larger portion of dough, still covered, into an 11-inch circle. Roll smaller portion of dough, still covered, into a 9-inch circle. Chill both portions of dough 10 minutes or until plastic can be easily removed. Working with larger portion of dough, remove top sheet of plastic; fit dough, uncovered side down, into a 9-inch round removable-bottom tart pan coated with cooking spray. Remove bottom sheet of plastic. Fold edges of pastry under; press up sides of pan. Spoon cranberry mixture into crust; set aside.

  • Working with the smaller portion of dough, remove top sheet of plastic. Cut dough into 1/2-inch strips. Gently remove dough strips from bottom sheet of plastic; arrange in a lattice design over cranberry mixture. Seal dough strips to edge of crust. Place tart on a baking sheet.

  • Bake at 425° for 40 minutes or until crust is browned and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.
