One of the little touches I’m most excited about when it comes to our wedding is the dessert, of course! Instead of having traditional wedding cake, as I mentioned, we are having pie. Two pies with the recipes developed by yours truly.

Guests at our wedding will be going home with the recipes for these pies, but I wanted to make sure you had them, too!

I absolutely love this pie because it’s the perfect combination of sweet and tart with dried cranberries and juicy fresh raspberries. The second pie is to come!

Cran-Raspberry Pie
Ingredients:
*1 Recipe Your Favorite Pie Dough (for a double crust pie)
*1 1/4 cups sugar
*1/3 cup all-purpose flour
*1/2 cup dried cranberries
*5 cups fresh raspberries
*2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
*Milk (optional)
*Additional sugar (optional)

Instructions
*On a lightly floured surface flatten one half of the pie dough. Roll from center to edges into a 12-inch circle.
*To transfer pastry, wrap it around the rolling pin; unroll into a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate, being careful not to stretch pastry.
*In a mixing bowl combine the 3⁄4 to 1 cup sugar and the flour. Stir in the dried cranberries, berries and lemon peel. Gently toss mixture until well coated. Transfer berry mixture to the pastry-lined pie plate.
*On lightly floured surface roll remaining dough into a 12-inch circle. For a 2-crust pie, trim bottom pastry to edge of pie plate. Cut slits in top crust for steam to escape; place on filling and fold edge under bottom pastry. Flute edge as desired. If desired, brush pastry top with a little milk and sprinkle with additional sugar
*To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil. Bake in a 375°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes more or until top is golden. Cool on wire rack.

Happy baking!

Madison
