This is not a traditional apple pie. I got the idea from Dinner-A Love Story. It’s actually a galette.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Roll out a 9 inch pie crust. I used a Betty Crocker pie crust mix, but you could use a frozen one or make one from scratch. Peel 3 or 4 apples and slice them thinly, I used 2 of the giant Fuji apples we get here in Tokyo. Since today is the Fourth of July and I wanted a little patriotic color I added 1/4 cup of fresh blueberries and a small handful of dried cranberries. Place the pie crust on a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Put the apples, blueberries and cranberries in the center of the crust and sprinkle with about 1/4 cup of sugar and a couples shakes of cinnamon. Mix this up a little using your hands. Then fold the sides of the pie crust up over the apples and dot with a few small pats of butter. Brush the crust with milk. Cook at 450 degrees for 20 minutes and then reduce the heat to 350 degrees for another 20 minutes.
