This pie is even better than the Perry Pie! And just as easy...
1 bag frozen raspberries
1/2 bag frozen cherries
1/4-1/2 c agave nectar
3/4 c dry oats, ground
3 apples, your choice
Premade pie crusts
I used Red Delicious, because they're not as sweet as other apples to me. But mix it up and try different flavors!
Let raspberries, cherries and sweetener thaw in a bowl.. or heat on low on the stove. Meanwhile, slice your apples. Do not peel!
Layer apple slices in the crust.
Grind oats in blender and add to cherry/raspberry mixture. This will soak up most of the extra juice and turn the berries into a gooey blob-like substance. Pour this directly over your apples.
Layer sliced pie crust on top.
Follow directions on package. Or, bake 30 minutes with foil on top. Then 25-30 minutes without foil.
OPTIONS: My husband likes those bad-for-you, sugary pies you get at the grocery store, so he thinks this pie could use more sugar. But if you're like me and you love fruit, you don't need to add any extra sugar! In fact, I use 1/4 c sweetener. But most people would probably prefer 1/2 c sweetener, especially if you're making this pie for people who aren't used to fruity (not sugary) pies. You can always ween them off the sweeteners over time.
