2 Premade pie crust or homemade pie crust
1 ½ Cups of Aroniaberries
6 Apples (peeled, cored and cubed)
¾ cup sugar or honey (save a tablespoon for decoration)
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp Milk (for brushing on the pie crust)
Reserve 1 tablespoon of sugar for decoration. Place the apples in a bowl, sprinkle with little lemon juice and mix. Add the Aroniaberries, sugar, and cinnamon. Set aside.
PieHeat oven to 375°F. Press premade crust into the pie dish. Distribute the filling evenly into the pie dish. Top the filling with the other crust. Press both edges together making a fluted edge. Cut 2-3 small slits on the top to let the steam out, brush with milk, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of sugar. Bake in the middle rack or about 50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
