Something Special Apple-Cherry Pie
- Makes: 8 servings
- Prep 40 mins
- Bake 55 mins
Combine two favorite pie fillings--apple and cherry--into one holiday treat. Add almonds for a nutty boost.
Pastry for double-crust pie
toasted almonds, chopped
thinly sliced, peeled Jonathan or Golden Delicious apples
frozen unsweetened pitted tart red cherries, thawed
- Prepare and roll out pastry. Line a 9-inch pie plate with half of the pastry. Trim bottom pastry 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Sprinkle toasted almonds on the bottom crust.
- In a large mixing bowl, toss apples with the cherry preserves. In a small bowl, stir together the 1/2 cup sugar, flour, and cardamom. Add to the apple mixture in the mixing bowl; add cherries. Gently toss the fruit to coat.
- Transfer mixture to the pastry-lined pie plate. Cut remaining pastry into 1/2-inch-wide strips for lattice top. Weave over filling and press into bottom pastry. Fold bottom pastry over strips; seal and crimp edge. Brush with milk and sprinkle with additional sugar.
- Cover the edge of the pie with foil to prevent overbrowning. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 25 minutes. Remove the foil. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes more or until the lattice top is golden and the filling is bubbly. Cool the pie on a wire rack.
