Supplies

  • Pie dish (9-inch)
  • Rolling pin
  • Mixing bowls
  • Pastry cutter or knife
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 1 double crust pie dough (store-bought or homemade)
  • 4 cups sliced tart apples (Granny Smith or similar)
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sugar (optional, for sprinkling)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Prepare the Dough: Roll out one half of the pie dough on a floured surface and fit it into a 9-inch pie dish. Trim the edges, leaving a 1-inch overhang.
  3. Mix the Filling: In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples, raspberries, granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Mix gently to combine.
  4. Fill the Pie: Pour the fruit mixture into the prepared pie crust. Dot the filling with small pieces of butter.
  5. Top Crust: Roll out the second half of the pie dough and place it over the filling. Trim the edges, leaving a 1-inch overhang. Fold the overhang under the bottom crust and crimp the edges to seal.
  6. Add Venting Slits: Cut a few small slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  7. Egg Wash: Brush the top crust with the beaten egg. Sprinkle with coarse sugar if desired.
  8. Bake the Pie: Place the pie on the middle rack of the preheated oven. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  9. Cool the Pie: Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for at least 2 hours before serving.
