Raspberry Cherry Pie Recipe
No one can resist a slice (or two!) of this tart "cherry-berry" pie. Growing up, my sister and I requested this pie for our birthdays instead of cake. Now it's a favorite of my own family. -Mari Anne Warren Milton, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling YIELD:8 servings
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 3 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
- 2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries

- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup shortening

- 1. For filling, in a bowl, combine sugar and tapioca. Add the raspberries, cherries and lemon juice; toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder; cut in shortening until crumbly. Combine the egg, water and vinegar. Gradually add to flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball.
