MIXED FRUIT PIE - PERFECT FOR SUMMER

This is a great time of the summer
to make a nice Mixed Fruit Pie.
I used 4 peaches cut up, 2 cups of
blueberries and 1 cup of raspberries.


Actually, you could do any combination of
ripe and fresh fruits such as blackberries
or strawberries, peaches, plums or blueberries.




I substituted lard for crisco in my pie crust.



You will need:  4 cups of of fresh, ripe fruit chopped in a large bowl with 1 tsp lemon juice.  Add 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp ground cinnamon and 1/4 cup of  flour and 1/4 cup of cornstarch - mix through.  

Pour into a pie shell bottom and add the lattice top.  Brush with egg yolk and bake at 425 for 25-30 minutes

Pie crust recipe:  2 cups sifted flour, cut in 3/4 cup crisco (or lard) using a flour kneader.  Add 5 - 8 Tb ice water to form a nice ball of dough.  Divide dough as 1/2 will be used for the lattice top.  Roll out on floured pastry cloth with a covered and floured rolling pin.  Press into pie shell.  After adding peach mix, cut the lattice strips and weave across the top.  You could use this recipe for other pies.

I love that you use brown sugar, which I think gives everything a richer taste...looks scrumptious!

Bernideen, that is one gorgeous pie! And filled with some of my favorite fruits. Glad you used lard instead of Crisco; I have an aversion to Crisco and always use organic unsalted butter for my pastry. Love a lattice crust--seems especially perfect for summer!
