My husband loves pie, so I made one with apples, raspberries and cranberries. This apple cranberry slab pie is so good, I bend the rules and let the grandkids have it for breakfast. —Brenda Smith, Curran, Michigan,

Divide dough into 2 portions so that 1 is slightly larger than the other; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
Roll out larger portion of dough between 2 pieces of waxed paper into a 18×13-in. rectangle. Remove top sheet of waxed paper; place a 15x10x1-in. baking pan upside down over crust. Lifting with waxed paper, carefully invert crust into pan. Remove waxed paper; press crust onto bottom and up sides of pan. Allow to chill while preparing filling.
In a Dutch oven, mix sugar and flour; stir in apples, cranberries, orange zest and spices. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 10-12 minutes or until apples are tender and juices are thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in raspberries. Set aside to cool completely.
Preheat oven to 375°. Add filling to prepared crust.
On a well-floured surface, roll remaining dough into a 1/8-in.-thick rectangle; cut into 1-1/2-in.-wide strips. Arrange strips over filling, sealing ends to bottom crust. If desired, brush crust with egg wash; sprinkle with additional sugar or coarse sugar.
Bake on lowest oven rack 45-50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. If desired, serve with whipped cream.
