Jewel-toned fruits team up to pack this pretty pie with festive flavor. The recipe is one that our four grown children especially enjoy when they come home for family holiday meals. —Verona Koehlmoos, Pilger, Nebraska

  • Dough for double-crust pie
  • 2 cups chopped fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 5 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Optional: Egg wash and coarse sugar


  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll half the dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim even with rim of plate. Chill until filling is ready.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cranberries, raspberries and extract. In another bowl, combine sugar, tapioca and salt. Add to fruit mixture; toss gently to coat. Let stand for 15-20 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°.
  3. Add filling to prepared bottom crust. Roll remaining dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle. Make a lattice crust; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edge. Chill 25 minutes or until crust is cold and firm. If desired, brush crust with egg wash and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  4. Bake on the bottom rack of oven until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, about 1-1/4 hours. Cover edge with foil if it begins to get too dark. Cool on a wire rack.
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.
Sugared Cranberries
Heat 3 tablespoons light corn syrup in microwave until warm; gently toss with 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, allowing excess syrup to drip off. Toss in 1/3 cup sugar to coat. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set, about 1 hour.
