  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. In a small bowl, combine the egg yolk, cold water and almond extract; gradually add to flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball.
  2. Divide dough in half so that one ball is slightly larger than the other. On a lightly floured surface, roll out larger ball to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate; trim even with edge of plate.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the cranberries, raspberries, 1-1/4 cups sugar, tapioca and extract; stir gently and let stand for 15 minutes. Spoon filling into crust; dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry; make a lattice crust. Trim, seal and flute edges. Brush with egg white; sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  4. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 30-35 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Cool completely on a wire rack. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 8 servings.

"I made this pie with 3 1/2 cups of cranberries instead of the 2 1/4, I left out the nuts and I put a crumb crust on the top using 1/2 cup sugar, 3/4 cup flour & 1/3 cup regular margarine. It was gone in a day!! I have made it twice and it doesn't last everyone loved it!!"

"I will make this soon--I love almond flavoring. It sounds good. The crust I make is similar to this one. It is the best!!"
