       1 c  Granulated sugar
       3 tb Tapioca; quick-cooking
       4 c  Cooking apples; 2 pounds
            --peeled, thinly sliced
       2 tb Butter or margarine
       2 ts Granulated sugar
     1/8 ts Ground nutmeg

     2/3 c  Shortening
       6 tb Cold water; to 7 tablespoons
   Recipe by: Midwest Living, October 1995 Filling: Thaw the frozen cherries;
   do not drain off the juice. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 cup sugar and
   the tapioca. Add the undrained cherries and the apples, tossing to coat.
   Let stand for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
   Pastry:  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  In a mixing bowl, stir together
   the flour and salt.  Cut in the shortening until the pieces are the size of
   small peas. Sprinkle the water, one tablespoon at a time, over part of the
   flour; toss gently with a fork. Push to the side of the bowl. Repeat until
   all is moistened. Divide the dough in half. Form each half into a ball. For
   the bottom crust, on a lightly floured surface, flatten one ball of dough
   and roll into a 12-inch circle. Line a 9-inch pie plate with the pastry.
   Trim the pastry to the edge of the pie plate. Roll out the remaining pastry
   for the top crust; cut into strips for a lattice crust or cut slits for the
   steam to escape.
   Spoon the filling into the pie crust; dot with the butter or margarine. Add
   the top crust, trimming 1-inch beyond the edge of the pie plate. Fold until
   the edge.  Seal and flute. Brush the top crust with milk. Sprinkle with 2
   teaspoons sugar and the nutmeg. Cover the edge of the pie with foil to
   prevent overbrowning. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and return to
   the oven for 20 to 25 minutes more, or until the crust is golden and the
   filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with ice cream, if you like.

   Note:  Here’s a trick for covering the pie to prevent a too-brown edge.
   Make a foil rim by folding a 12-inch square of foil into quarters. Cut out
   the center portion of the foil, making a 7 1/2-inch circle. Unfold and
   loosely mold the foil rim over the edge of the pie, leaving the center
