Forget dinner tonight’s about pie!

Apple – Raspberry Pie

1 refrigerated pie crust

5 cups (3 large) sliced apples

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup corn starch

1 teaspoon grated orange peel (no white)

1 cup (6oz container) raspberries

1 tablespoon of cold butter cut into small pieces

1 teaspoon sugar

This recipe was in my local grocery store flier.

Preheat over to 400 degrees.  Using a 9 inch glass pie pan prepare pie crust as directed on box.

– In a large bowl place sliced apples, sugar, corn starch and orange peel, toss to coat apples.  Put 1/2 apple mixture in pie crust top with raspberries and remaining apples.  Top with second crust , seal edges and flute.

– Lightly brush with water and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of sugar. Cut several slits into pie crust to release steam. I like to cover the edges with foil to prevent burning.  (remove foil the last 10 minutes if edges are not brown)

– Bake in center of over for 45 to 50 minutes, let pie cool at least one hour before digging in 🙂 great with vanilla ice cream.

  1. It sounds absolutely delicious, but did you know with a pie bird inserted you just need to crimp the crust around the bird’s neck and no slits are needed. The cute little bird vents out the steam.

  2. Thanks Rita I have to admit putting in the pie bird was and after thought. It was delish and I will definitely make it again.
