Nothing says fall like warm apple pie.  The dried fruit and almonds included in Sun-Maid’s Autumn Apple Pie recipe adds a new fiber- and antioxidant-rich twist on this traditional treat.  Incorporating dried apricots, golden raisins and tart cherries among the apples gives this pie a sweet bite while the familiar spices of cinnamon and nutmeg enhance the natural fruit flavors.

3/4 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, divided
1/4 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup Sun-Maid Dried Halves or Mediterranean Apricots chopped
1/2 cup Sun-Maid Golden Raisins
1/4 cup Sun-Maid Tart Cherries
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
