DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl, stir the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg to mix well.
  • Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until the mixture makes coarse crumbs; there may be some small pieces of butter still visible; that is fine.
  • Adjust oven rack one-third up from bottom of oven; preheat to 350°.
  • In a bowl, combine the sugar and tapioca; add in the frozen berries, stir gently with a rubber spatula; let stand for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, peel, quarter, and core the apple; cut it into ¼ to ½ inch cubes.
  • Stir it into the berry mixture; sprinkle the lemon juice over the fruit and gently stir together.
  • Spread the berry mixture in a smooth layer in the crust; slowly and carefully sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the berry mixture.
  • To prevent rim of the pie from overbrowning, cover edges of pie crust with foil.
  • Bake for 1 hour; then remove foil, increase heat to 450° and continue baking for 8-10 minutes, only until the filling begins to bubble up around the edges (watch it and do not let it bubble over.
  • Remove from oven; at this point the filling will be thin and soupy, but when it cools it will become firm and will slice nicely.
  • Serve at room temperature, plain or with vanilla ice cream.
  • Note: it is important that the crust be high and not have any low spots or the filling will bubble over.
