Autumn Apple PieMakes 8 servings

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.
