16.5 oz. can blackberries, raspberries or boysenberries, drained
1 cup finely chopped, pared apple (about 1 medium size, tart variety such as Granny Smith)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
Dash salt

3 single pastry crusts for 9” pie (ready-to-use, mix or homemade)
