Our active family is full of big eaters. So I’m grateful for our raspberry patch, our apple orchard and dessert recipes like this apple raspberry pie. You can substitute frozen berries for fresh. —Heidi Jo Keranen, Bruno, MN


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 3 cups coarsely chopped peeled tart apples
  • 3 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • Dough for double-crust pie
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, combine sugar and tapioca. Add apples and raspberries; toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, on a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge.
  2. Spoon filling into crust; dot with butter. Roll out remaining dough to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edge. Cut slits in crust. If desired, brush with egg and sprinkle with additional sugar.
  3. Bake until crust is golden brown and apples are tender, 45-55 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
Apple Raspberry Pie Tips

What kind of apples should you use to make Apple Raspberry Pie?

When making this pie, opt for varieties that fall under the umbrella of "cooking apples," such as Gravenstein, Rome Beauty or Northern Spy. These apples have a tarter taste, which offsets the sweetness of the sugar in the pie. They also tend to hold up well while baking without becoming overly mushy or wet.

Should you let frozen raspberries thaw before using them in Apple Raspberry Pie?

You needn't let the frozen raspberries thaw before using them in this pie. If you'd like, you can take the berries out of the freezer for a few minutes to let them defrost, but you don't need to bring them to room temperature. Check out our full guide to baking pies with frozen fruit.

Can you use other kinds of berries instead of raspberries?

You can use a plethora of berries to replace the raspberries in this recipe; it mostly depends on what taste or flavor combination you enjoy most. Try using blackberries, blueberries, cranberries or whatever regional specialty is available in your local grocery store.

Dough for double-crust pie
Combine 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1/2 tsp. salt; cut in 1 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 1/3 to 2/3 cup ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
