    In a large bowl, combine the sugar, cornstarch, tapioca and fruit; let stand for 15 minutes. In another bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine the egg, water and vinegar; stir into flour mixture just until moistened.

    Divide dough in half so that one portion is slightly larger than the other. On a lightly floured surface, roll out larger portion to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate; trim pastry even with edge. Spoon fruit mixture into crust.

    Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; make a lattice crust. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry. Brush with cream; sprinkle with coarse sugar.

    Bake at 375° for 45-55 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool completely on a wire rack. If using frozen fruit, measure fruit while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
