Recipe | "Apple Cranberry Slab Pie" by Sue Ready

Cook's Notes: On a sweet autumn note- be sure to put Apple-Cranberry Slab Pie on your list to try. It was absolutely delicious with the pairing of fall flavors apples and cranberries with a maple icing. Pair the puff pastry dessert with a cup of coffee and add a visit with a neighbor. Recipe adapted from Magnolia Journal 2016

Pastry Ingredients:

  • 1 package puff pastry 2 sheets, thawed 
  • 6 cups of diced apples (I used 4 Granny Smith and 1 Honey Crisp) 
  • 2/3 cup dried cranberries or cherries 
  • 2/3 cup sugar 
  • 1/4 cup flour 
  • 1-1/2 tsp. Saigon cinnamon 
  • 2 TB. sugar mixed with 1/2 tsp. Saigon cinnamon (topping)
Icing Ingredients:
  • 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar 
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla 
  • 1 TB. pure maple syrup 
  • dash salt 
  • about 5 tsp. milk 


  • Thaw pastry sheets on a large sheet of wax paper that is lightly floured. Keep sheets covered with another piece of wax paper so they don't dry out. 
  • In a large bowl combine sugar, cinnamon and flour. Stir in diced apples and cranberries. 
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  • Lightly roll one pastry sheet to approximately a 12 x 9 rectangle and place on baking sheet. 

  • Spread apple mixture down the center of the pastry sheet leaving a 3/4-1 inch border. 
  • Moisten the edges with a little milk. 
  • Unfold the remaining pastry sheet and roll to a 12 x 9 rectangle. Gently stretch over the bottom layer with apple mixture. Lightly press edges all around rectangle using fork tines. 
  • Brush top crust lightly with milk and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture. 
  • Cut slits in pastry for vents. 
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until apple mixture is bubbling a bit through the vents. To prevent over browning cover pie loosely with foil if needed. 

  • Mix icing ingredients until smooth with a small whisk. 
  • Drizzle over slab pie that has cooled for 15 minutes that's assuming you can wait that long. 
  • Cut pastry using a serrated knife down center then cut into serving pieces.
