Strawberry Apple Pie

Who would have ever thought that a strawberry apple pie would be so good? The combination of fruit in this luscious pie complement each other nicely, without a dominant flavor or ingredient hogging center stage.

This easy and delicious fruit pie recipe uses one rolled pie dough for the bottom crust and a sugary oat streusel topping.

You can either make your own pie crust (as I did here), or you can use a store-bought premade pie crust. The choice is yours because they’re both very tasty options!

How this recipe came to be:

This recipe is not my own.

Well, the streusel topping was my idea, but the actual recipe for the strawberry apple pie came from a cookbook I own that goes WAY back to the 1980s (forever ago) called Great American Home Baking.

It was one of those cookbook subscriptions where you get a chapter every month (or so) in the mail, and then you add the chapters to the ring-binder that came along with the initial shipment.

Why does this homemade fruit pie recipe stand out?

Because it’s different.

Once I’d spotted this recipe in the cookbook, I knew I had to make it.

I’d never heard of a strawberry apple pie before. And since “different” always appeals to me (apple humor), it will hopefully appeal to you too.

Can store-bought pie dough be used for this recipe?

It certainly can. And in a pinch, I would typically reach for the premade pie dough.

Please note that for this strawberry apple pie, you’ll only need one 9″ store-bought pie dough for the bottom crust.

However, if you wanted to use two pie crusts, and not do the streusel topping, the choice is certainly yours to make.

Can other fruit be mixed with an apple pie?

I’ve not tried it, but I’m sure adding fresh blueberries, raspberries, chopped ripe peaches, or even pineapple chunks would work.

As long as the additional fruit isn’t too wet, and you follow the same instructions with the cornstarch (as the filling thickener), it should all work quite well.

How long does it take to make this strawberry apple pie?

If making your own pie dough, this pie will take approximately 2 and a half hours; 30 minutes to prep the dough and pie, 1 hour to chill the dough, and 1 hour to bake the pie.

If using store-bought pie dough the time will be more like 1 and a quarter hours; 15 minutes to prep the pie filling, and 1 hour to bake the pie.

How to make strawberry apple pie:

Using homemade pie dough:

  • In a food processor (or large bowl with a pastry blender), add the all-purpose flour, salt, cubed chilled butter, cubed chilled shortening, and pulse until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add ice water, and apple cider vinegar, and pulse again until the mixture holds together when squeezed.
  • Turn the dough out onto the counter and form it into a ball. *Note – the mixture will be crumbly.
  • Place the dough onto plastic wrap and press the dough into a flattened disc.
  • Wrap well in plastic wrap and chill the flattened disc at least 60 minutes.

How to make the strawberry apple pie filling:

  • Peel and slice 2 granny smith apples. Place in a large bowl.
  • Hull and slice 1 pint of fresh strawberries. Add to the bowl with the apples.
  • Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, pure vanilla extract, ground nutmeg, cornstarch, and a pinch of salt.
  • Stir gently to combine.

How to prepare the strawberry apple pie:

  • Preheat oven to 375-degrees.
  • Roll the pie dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Transfer the pie dough to a pie plate that has been sprayed with baking spray.
  • If needed, evenly press the dough into the pie plate into an even thickness.
  • Add a thin layer of strawberry jam to the bottom of the crust and dock the crust with a fork to prevent air bubbles.
  • In a medium bowl, make the streusel topping by working butter into flour, sugar, brown sugar, oatmeal, salt, and ground nutmeg by using fingertips or a pastry blender until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Drain any excess liquid from the pie filling and then spoon the filling evenly into the prepared pie crust.
  • Top the pie evenly with the streusel topping and place the pie onto a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake the pie in a preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until the pie is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  • Cool completely on a wire rack before serving.

How to store a strawberry apple pie:

Cover it well with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Can this fruit pie be frozen after baking?

Yes!

Once completely cool, wrap the baked pie well with plastic wrap and/or aluminum foil and freeze for up to 5 months.

Thaw completely at room temperature before slicing and serving.

Instructions

To make the pie dough (or store-bought can be used, see below):

  1. In a food processor (or large bowl with a pastry blender), add the all-purpose flour, salt, cubed chilled butter, cubed chilled shortening, and pulse until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  1. Add ice water, and apple cider vinegar and pulse again until the mixture holds together when about 2 tablespoons are squeezed in your hand.
  2. Turn the dough out onto the counter and form it into a ball. *Note - the mixture will be crumbly.
  3. Place the dough onto plastic wrap and press the dough into a flattened disc.
  4. Wrap well in plastic wrap and chill the flattened disc at least 60 minutes.


To make the filling:

    1. Peel and slice 2 granny smith apples to approximately ¼" thickness. Place in a large bowl.
    2. Hull and slice 1 pint of fresh strawberries (to approximately ½" thickness). Add to the bowl with the apples.
    3. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, pure vanilla extract, ground nutmeg, cornstarch, and a pinch of salt.
    4. Stir gently to combine. Set aside.
