! from hearts to hands: Apple Berry Pie
"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." ~ Leo Buscaglia

Apple Berry Pie

A wonderful pie brimming with apples and berries


  • 1 pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons tapioca
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups fresh blackberries or blueberries
  • 3 cups apples - peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll out one crust, and place in a 9 inch pie plate. Roll out top crust, and set aside.

  • In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, tapioca, and cinnamon. Add blackberries and apple slices. Toss gently to coat without mashing the berries. Let stand for 20 minutes.
  • Spoon filling into pastry lined pan. Dot with butter. Moisten the edge of the pastry with water. Cover with top crust; trim and crimp edge. Cut a few slits in the top to allow steam to escape during baking. Cover edge with foil to prevent over-browning.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil, and continue baking for 20 to 25 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Cool on wire rack
