CRANBERRY-MINCEMEAT PIE

pastry for a 2-crust pie
2/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp cornstarch
2/3 cup water
1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries, rinsed and drained
1 jar mincemeat
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp water

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a 9 or 10-inch pie plate with a pastry; set aside.

In saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch; add water. Over high heat, cook and stir until boiling. Add the cranberries and return to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the mixture for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour the mincemeat into the pastry-lined pie plate. Top with the cranberry mixture. Cover with the other pastry, vent, seal the edges and flute. Whip together the egg yolk and 2 tbsp water. Brush the egg mixture over the top pastry. Bake in the lower half of the oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown at 425 degrees. Cool before cutting.
