Dutch Apple & Raspberry Pie with Cream Cheese Crust

After having more than my fill of cookies this holiday, I'm switching gears and moving onto pie. I recently visited a restaurant which had a delicious apple and raspberry pie that was amazing. Inspired from the great meal I had, I wanted to try my hand at making a similar pie.

That's when this Dutch Apple & Raspberry Pie found it's way into my oven. I whipped up the crust with a blend of Krusteaz Pie Crust Mix, cream cheese and sugar. Then the filling…a scrumptious mixture of apples and raspberries. And to top it all off, Krusteaz Crisp Topping Mix and slivered almonds. So if you’re looking to switch things up a little for your family and friends this holiday, give this pie a try!

Dutch Apple & Raspberry Pie with Cream Cheese Crust


Prep Time 30 min Total Time 1 hr 20 min Servings 8


1 cup Krusteaz Pie Crust Mix
2 tablespoons softened cream cheese
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cold water

3 cups chopped fresh apples
1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon butter, cut into 4 pieces

Dutch Topping
1 package Krusteaz Crisp Topping Mix
1/4 cup silvered almonds
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened


Heat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, combine pie crust mix, cream cheese, sugar and cold water, adding water 1 tablespoon at a time. Mix with a fork until moistened and dough forms. Form the dough into a ball. Flatten into a round on a well-floured surface. Roll the dough into a circle, 2 inches in diameter larger than your inverted pie pan.

Fold the dough in half; then into quarters. Carefully transfer the folded dough to an ungreased pie pan; carefully unfold. Style the edge to your preference and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the apples, raspberries, sugar and flour. Transfer the fruit mixture into prepared pie pan and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the crisp topping mix, almonds, and butter.

Combine with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle crisp topping mixture over fruit in prepared pie pan. Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly.
