Apple Cranberry Raisin Pie

"One of the best fruit pies I have eaten in a long time. This is a Canadian Living recipe that I had wanted to try for a while but it was a matter of having all of the ingredients on hand, which I finally did. The pie itself bakes very quickly as the filling is precooked."

  • On a lightly-floured surface, roll out half of the pastry and line a 9" pie plate.

  • Stir in the apple slices and raisins.

  • Cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until thickened slightly.
  • Spoon the filling into the pastry-lined pie plate.
  • Roll out the remaining pastry and place on top of the pie, leaving a 1" overhang.
  • Trim the edges.

<p>I live with my husband, four cats, and a sweet mutt named Jada in Scarborough, Ontario, where I work as an elementary school administrative assistant. I have a 31 year old daughter who lives with her boyfriend in nearby Don Mills, along with my sweet granddogs, Frankie and Turbo. I would have to say that my passion is animals, since I have so many of them! <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br />If I had a month off work to do what I please, I would first catch up on my sleep and then just have fun - see a few movies and maybe take a couple of short trips - something that wouldn't break the bank - lol!</p>
