I’ve got an amazing twist on a classic apple pie recipe to share with you today! We’re serving up Raspberry Apple Pie for thanksgiving this year, and the blast of berry flavor is a surprise ingredient everyone will welcome.
With so many dessert options around the holidays, it’s important that the dessert you bring to the party is the one that stands out. There’s no use putting your heart and soul into baking homemade pie, only to bring most of it home at the end of an event. Well, I can guarantee that won’t happen if you serve raspberry apple pie to your friends and family this holiday season.
We bring home bushels of hand-picked apples every fall and a good portion of them end up in pies… So you could say I’ve made my fair share of apple pies over the years. Classic apple pies, some with crumb toppings, others with savory elements.
Yet, I’ve never seen an apple pie disappear as fast as this one!
The extra pop of vibrant raspberry flavor from fresh Driscoll’s Raspberries makes this raspberry apple pie recipe the shining beacon of fruity bliss at any holiday event.
I started my Raspberry Apple Pie much like I would have started any apple pie. I made my pie crust and gingerly placed one piece in a large deep-dish pie pan.
Then I peeled, cored, and cut the apples and tossed them in lemon juice. Yet here’s where it gets interesting…
Before filling the pie crust, I tossed in fresh sweet raspberries and a large scoop of raspberry preserves.
Then I cut the second crust into hearts to cover the top of the pie so there are plenty of natural air vents. Pretty and practical.
The apples and raspberries bake and bubble together inside the pie creating the most glorious aroma and flavor. Raspberry Apple Pie is brighter and bolder than standard apple pie, with pink dripping Driscoll’s raspberries speckled throughout.
It’s a pie with punch!
