Mix flour, sugar, butter
and eggs, sand beat 5 minutes or so. Add the apple and cranberries,
stir well and pour the batter into a greased cake tin. Bake 50 minutes
at 160 degrees Celsius.
Knead the flour (keep
two tablespoons behind) with the butter, half of the sugar and 1 egg.
Roll out this dough and line 6 small tartlet moulds with it. Distribute
the apple pieces over the pies as in the picture. Mix the cream with
the remaining eggs, flour and sugar and the vanilla sugar and pour this
over the apples. Bake the pies 20 minutes in the oven at 180 degrees
Celsius. Heat the jam and brush
the top of the pies with it.
