On lightly floured surface, roll out half of the pastry into 12-inch (30 cm) circle. Fit into 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate; trim overhang. Set aside.

In sieve, drain blueberries, rhubarb and cranberries; gently press out excess juice and reserve for another use. In large bowl, combine apples, sugar, flour and cornstarch; add fruit mixture and toss to coat. Scrape into pie shell; dot with butter.

Roll out remaining pastry into 13-inch (33 cm) circle; brush rim of pie shell with water and fit pastry over filling. Trim edge, leaving 3/4-inch (2 cm) overhang; fold overhang under pastry rim. Press to seal and flute edge.

Glaze: In small bowl, whisk egg yolk with 2 tsp (10 mL) water; brush lightly over pastry. Sprinkle with sugar; cut steam vents in top.

Bake pie in bottom third of 350°F (180°C) convection oven until pastry is golden and filling is bubbly, about 1 hour. Let cool on rack. (Make-ahead: Cover loosely and store at room temperature for up to 6 hours.)

Conventional oven: Bottom third at 425°F (220°C) for 15 minutes; 350°F (180°C) for about 40 minutes.
