An Apple Berry Recipe for the Apple Picking Season

Berry Lovers and Apple Lovers Can Live in Harmony

It's no secret that I'm a berry lover. In fact, I have a whole family full of em. But what happens when a berry lover marries an apple lover? All "you know what" breaks lose this time of year. Apple picking starts and the berry fights begin. The apple lovers always try replacing our berry recipes with apple concoctions and the wars soon begin. However, I know for a fact that berry lovers can live in harmony with apple lovers. Here's a recipe to prove it.

Apple-Berry Tart

Tart never tasted so sweet. This apple berry recipe takes the best of both worlds and combines it into a delicious dessert that everyone can enjoy. To make your apple berry peace offering, you'll need the following ingredients...

For the Pastry

1 cup of all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cubed unsalted butter
1/4 cup of pastry flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 separated egg
2 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of sour cream

For the Apple Berry Pastry Filling

1 cup of peeled and finely chopped granny smith apples
6 ounces of raspberries
6 ounces of blackberries
1/2 cup of orange juice
1/3 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Apple and Berry Get Together

Now that you have your ingredients, it's time for the fun part. First, make sure you keep the ingredients categories separate. Don't be mixing the filling ingredients with the pastry ingredients and vice versa.

Now coat a pie tin with cooking spray. Then get your pastry ingredients and mix both types of flour together with the salt. Cut the butter into the mixture until it becomes "crumbly" and then add the egg yolk, honey and sour cream. Now fold the mixture into a dough and flatten it into a pastry shell. Wrap it in plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator to chill overnight.

Now it's time for the apple berry jam. First, mix the apples, orange juice and honey in a pot and bring it to a boil. Leave it at a low boil for 20 minutes and then add the berries and cinnamon and cook the mixture for another 10 to 15 minutes. Take it off the heat and let it cool in a mixing bowl.

Make sure the apple berry jam is at room temperature and then brush your pastry shell with the egg white and pour the jam into it. Bake it at 400 degrees for about 35 to 40 minutes.

Yes, this apple berry recipe is a bit time consuming and complicated, but isn't that what relationships are about?
