Preparation

Step 1

In large bowl, combine sugar, cornstarch, tapioca and fruit; let stand for 15 minutes. In another bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine egg, water and vinegar; stir into flour mixture just until moistened.

Divide dough in half so that one portion is slightly larger than other. On lightly floured surface, roll out larger portion to fit 9-inch pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate; trim pastry even with edge. Spoon fruit mixture into crust.

Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; make lattice crust. Trim, seal and flute edges. Brush with cream; sprinkle with coarse sugar.

Bake at 375°F for 45 to 55 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool completely on wire rack.

Note: If using frozen fruit, measure fruit while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in colander, but do not press liquid out.
