A great combo of apples and blueberries

This pie is a real winner. It combines the taste and crunch of Granny Smith apples with the gooey texture of baked blueberries and the additional crunch of walnuts. It looks good, tastes good and goes together in a snap. This pie is far more interesting than most apple crumb pies.

Notes

The original recipe calls for Maine blueberries. Maine blueberries can be easily substituted with local berries if you are not in Maine or do not have access to Maine blueberries.  Wyler is a popular brand and a more easily available brand of frozen Maine berries.  Frozen berries of any variety will work just fine.
Using berries that are still frozen works fine, it may just lengthen baking time. Be sure to check the bottom of the crust (should be slightly golden brown) to ensure that it is fully baked.
