A neighbor shared this pie with me years ago, and now it has a big fan club. I'm always looking for new treats to bake for my family, but this is one I turn to again and again, especially in summer. —Wanda Van Voorhis, Plain City, Ohio
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 1/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons quick-cooking tapioca
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2-1/2 cups fresh or frozen pitted tart cherries, thawed
- 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries, thawed
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 package (14.1 ounces) refrigerated pie pastry
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon 2% milk
- Coarse sugar
- Preheat oven to 400°. Mix sugar, tapioca and salt. Place cherries, raspberries and lemon juice in a large bowl; toss gently with sugar mixture. Let stand 15 minutes.
- Unroll one pastry sheet into a 9-in. pie plate; trim pastry to 3/4 in. beyond rim of plate. Add filling; dot with butter.
- Unroll remaining pastry; cut into 2-1/2-in.-wide strips. Arrange over filling in a lattice pattern. Trim and seal strips to edge of bottom pastry; flute edge. Whisk together egg and milk; brush over lattice top. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
Cover edge loosely with foil. Bake 30 minutes. Remove foil; bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 5-10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked pie. To use, remove from freezer 30 minutes before baking (do not thaw). Preheat oven to 400°. Bake as directed, increasing time as necessary. Yield: 8 servings.
