Instructions Checklist
  • Pour flour into a bowl and cut in lard. Mix ice water, egg, vinegar, and salt together in a separate bowl. Add to flour mixture and mix until well combined. Divide pastry into halves, wrap in plastic, and chill for at least 1 hour.

  • Combine 1 1/2 cups sugar and tapioca in a bowl. Add raspberries, cherries, lemon juice, and almond extract. Let fruit filling stand 15 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch glass pie plate.

  • Roll out half the pastry to fit the pie plate. Place bottom crust in the pie plate. Roll the top crust into a 10-inch circle and cut it into 1/2-inch strips using a sharp paring knife or pastry wheel. Pour fruit filling into pie plate. Moisten the rim of the bottom crust with a small amount of water. Start with the longest strips and lay the first 2 in an 'X' in the center of the pie. Alternate horizontal and vertical strips, weaving them in an over-and-under pattern. Use the shortest strips for the edges of the lattice. Fold the ends of the lattice strips under the edge of the bottom crust and flute the crust.

  • Stir together egg and cream in a small bowl. Brush lattice with egg mixture and sprinkle with coarse sugar.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
