Apple Peach Pie

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)

This pie is a fabulous combination of flavors and textures. The juice produced during baking is like a wild sweet nectar. This recipe is a variation on the first place winner in "Pie On The Square", a local baking contest I judged a few years ago. Use Refrigerator Pie Crust for best results. But you could also use a purchased refrigerated crust.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line 9" pie pan with one crust of Refrigerated Pie Crust.

In large bowl, combine sugar, tapioca, cinnamon, and apple and peach slices. Sprinkle corn flakes in the bottom of the pie crust, and fill with apple-peach mixture. Sprinkle with the dry lemon Jell-O and dot with butter. Add top crust and flute. Cut decorative slits in top crust.
