  1. In a bowl, combine all the dough ingredients and thoroughly mix. Divide the mass into a 1:2 ratio. Form two dough balls and wrap each in plastic wrap.
  2. Refrigerate 2/3 of the dough for 60 minutes and freeze the remaining 1/3.
  3. Peel and grate the apples. Grate the lemon, including the peel, carefully removing the seeds. Mix the grated apples and lemon, add sugar, and allow the mixture to release its juice. Drain excess juice.
  4. Line the bottom of a heat-resistant form (diameter ~ 24-26 cm) with parchment paper. Flatten and spread the larger portion of the dough evenly on the bottom.
  5. Sprinkle the base with flour and spread the apple-lemon filling.
  6. Grate the smaller portion of the dough using a coarse grater over the filling, distributing it evenly.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C (356°F). Check for readiness with a toothpick. Before serving, dust the pie with a little powdered sugar, decorate with a sprig of mint, and dried cranberries.

Enjoy your meal!
