"This dish is not only easy but very elegant," relates Renee Zimmer of Gig Harbor, Washington. "I got the recipe from a church cooking class and now fix it often, with rave reviews. You can serve it in bowls, but I always get more oohs and aahs when I put it in lovely goblets."
After a blackberry-picking trip, my husband and I decided to include a few in a apple pie we were making. It was the best we'd ever tasted! We live near the mountains with our two children. Ingredients for fruit pies grow all around us.
This free-form tart requires no pie plate. Just roll out the dough and place on a pizza pan or baking sheet. Place the filling in center of dough and fold up the edge of the pastry to hold in the fruit and juices.— Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
I serve this apple pie at my monthly bridge club meetings and it always gets thumbs up. You don't need to serve it with a slice of cheese, since there is cheese in the streusel.—Mary June Donovan, Clinton, Massachusetts
My family is fond of any treat featuring apples, but this pie is the one they like best. Unlike some fruit pies, this crust doesn't become soggy, thanks to the addition of ground walnuts. Everyone agrees the flavor of nuts pairs well with apples in this fall favorite. —Evonne Wurmnest, Normal, Illinois
The first time I made this for my family, they gobbled up this wonderful change-of-pace holiday dessert. It has a scrumptious layer of apples under the pumpkin.—Elizabeth Montogomery, Taylorville, Illinois
