Serves: 8
 
Ingredients
  • 2 9 inch uncooked pie crusts
  • 3 cups of sliced appled (I cut the slices in half as well)
  • 1 cup of concord grapes (concord grapes are small so you don't need to halve them)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • ¼ cup sugar (you might want to up your sugar quantity if using regular grapes)
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ cup of milk
  • 1 tsp of Demerara sugar (or regular granulated sugar)
Instructions
  1. preheat oven to 375F
  2. prick the bottom of your pie crust with a fork
  3. toss fruit together in a bowl with lemon juice
  4. mix together flour, ¼ cup sugar and nutmeg and stir into fruit
  5. pour the fruit mixture into the pie crust
  6. roll out your second pie crust on a lightly floured surface and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter (I used a maple leaf)
  7. place cutouts on top of the fruit in any pattern you like - don't layer too much or it might not cook through
  8. brush crust and cutouts with milk and sprinkle sugar over top
  9. bake for about 40 minutes or until the crust starts to brown and fruit is bubbling and producing liquid
  10. let sit for an hour before serving
Notes
Updated: I have received numerous comments about concord seeds so I thought I better address this because I would never have published a recipe that would leave everyone with a mouthful of seeds.

I used a seedless local variety from Canada's Okanagan region called Coronation. There are tiny little seed "nibs" like in a regular seedless grape but they're not noticeable to anyone eating them. As these are the only variety of concords I've ever had, I didn't realize many parts of the US only know concords as having seeds. If this is you, you'll need to seed the grapes or use regular seedless grapes (although you may need to adjust your sugar quantities as concords are quite sweet to begin with)
