Tasty Thursday: Strawberry Apple Pie

I am hoping to make this tonight, and it has got to be one of the best tasting pies I've ever had. I didn't know if I'd like it at first, but now I can't get enough of it. Don't forget to visit the Pumkin Patch for more Tasty Thursday recipes!

Strawberry Apple Pie

  • 3 1/2 cups thinly sliced peeled Granny Smith apples (about 3 medium)
  • 1 1/4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Pastry for double-crust pie
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Whipped topping (optional)

In a large bowl, combine the apples and strawberries; drizzle with lemon juice. Combine sugar and flour; sprinkle over fruit and toss lightly.

Line a 9-inch pie plate with bottom pastry; trim even with edge of plate. Add filling. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in top. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over pastry. Cover edges loosely with foil.

Bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; remove foil and bake 35-40 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Garnish with whipped topping if desired.

Yield: 6-8 servings.

I was a bit cautious at first too, but it has got to be one of the best pies I've ever had. It's also addictive!
