My mother made this pie so often, she could do it with her eyes closed! We picked the berries ourselves, and the apples came from the trees in our orchard. I can still taste the delicious combination of fruits encased in Mother's flaky pie crust. —Fran Stanfield, Wilmington , Ohio

Ingredients

  • Dough for double-crust pie
  • 5 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples (about 5 medium)
  • 1 pint fresh blackberries, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water or milk

Directions

  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll out half the dough to fit a 9-in. pie plate; trim to 1 in. beyond rim of plate. Top with a thin layer of apples. In a large bowl, combine blackberries and remaining apples; sprinkle with lemon juice. Combine sugar and cornstarch. Add to fruit mixture; toss gently to coat. Spoon into crust; dot with butter.
  2. Roll out remaining dough; make a lattice crust. Trim, seal and flute edges. Beat egg with water; brush over lattice top and pie edges.
  3. Bake at 375° for 50 minutes or until filling is bubbly and apples are tender. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
