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.
