My husband loves pie, so I made one with apples, raspberries and cranberries. It’s so good, I bend the rules and let the grandkids have it for breakfast. —Brenda Smith, Curran, Michigan

  • Dough for 2 double-crust pies
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 medium tart apples, peeled and sliced (about 4-1/2 cups)
  • 4 cups frozen or fresh raspberries
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Optional: Additional orange juice and sugar


  1. Divide dough into 2 portions so that 1 is slightly larger than the other; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
  2. In a Dutch oven, mix sugar and flour; stir in fruit, orange zest, orange juice and spices. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 10-12 minutes or until apples are tender and juices are thickened, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°. Roll out larger portion of dough between 2 pieces of waxed paper into a 16x12-in. rectangle. Remove top sheet of waxed paper; place a 13x9-in. baking pan upside down over crust. Lifting with waxed paper, carefully invert crust into pan. Remove waxed paper; press crust onto bottom and up sides of pan. Add filling.
  4. On a well-floured surface, roll remaining dough into a 14x10-in. rectangle; cut into 3/4-in.-wide strips. Arrange strips over filling, sealing ends to bottom crust. If desired, brush crust with additional orange juice; sprinkle with additional sugar.
  5. Bake 40-50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.
Test Kitchen Tips
  • Don't let the lattice intimidate you! Keep it simple by skipping the weave. Here we just layer strands for a faux lattice that looks equally stunning.
  • Have a to-die-for pie crust recipe? Swap it in to make this your own.
  • Pastry for two double-crust pies (9 inches): In a large bowl, combine 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 Tbsp. sugar and 2 tsp. salt; cut in 1-3/4 cups shortening until crumbly. Whisk 1 large egg, 1 Tbsp. white vinegar and 1/2 cup ice water; gradually add to flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed.
