Cranberry Apple Tart with Cinnamon Cream
Dried cranberries are available in a range of flavors. For variety, try orange- or cherry-infused cranberries in this recipe.
To make the crust, combine flour and salt in a bowl. Add chilled shortening and cut with knives or pastry cutter until mixture resembles small peas. Add ice water and work mixture with fingers until water is incorporated. Form dough into a soft ball. Place ball in the center of a 9-inch greased quiche or tart pan. Press dough evenly across bottom and up sides of pan.
Place apples and cranberries in a large bowl. Mix together sugar, flour, and cinnamon and toss with apples and cranberries. Sprinkle with vanilla. Spread mixture evenly over crust and dot with butter.
In a bowl, combine brown sugar, granola, and flour. Work in butter with fingers until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over the apple mixture.
Place pan on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 350ºF for 40 minutes, or until top is browned and apple mixture is bubbly.
Serve with cinnamon-spiked whipped cream.
