  • 3   tablespoons 
  • 2   tablespoons 
    balsamic vinegar, port wine, or grape juice
  • 5   cups 
    seedless red grapes, halved (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 1/2  cups 
    frozen or fresh red raspberries
    Pastry Dough
  • 1   
    egg white
  • 1   tablespoon 
Pastry Dough
  • 1   cup 
    all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  cup 
    white whole wheat flour or whole wheat flour
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
  • 1/3  cup 
    60 to 70% tub-style vegetable oil spread, chilled
  • 3 - 4   tablespoons 
    cold water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with foil; set aside. For filling: In a 4-quart Dutch oven, combine brown sugar, cornstarch, and vinegar. Add grapes. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat. Gently stir in raspberries. Transfer filling to a 9 1/2-inch deep-dish pie plate. Place pie plate on prepared baking sheet.
On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten Pastry Dough ball. Using a rolling pin, roll dough from center to edges to 1/8-inch thickness. Using 1-1/2- to 2-inch leaf-shape cutters, cut out dough, leaving as little space between cutouts as possible. Arrange leaf cutouts atop grape filling. (If desired, reroll and cut out the pastry scraps.)
In a small bowl, use a fork to beat together egg white and the water. Brush pastry cutouts lightly with egg white mixture. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.

Push moistened dough to the side of the bowl. Repeat moistening flour mixture, using 1 tablespoon cold water at a time, until all flour mixture is moistened. Form dough into a ball.
