Fresh Fruit Pie

Submitted by Lori Kilmer

Can use any fruit you want, I use this recipe for cherry, aprium, apricot, peach, blueberry, blackberry and a combination of fruits, like peach/blueberry pie.


Enough fruit to fill your pie tin

3/4 cup of sugar

2 Tbsp lemon juice

4 Tbsp cornstarch

Pie crust of your choice, make one or buy one


• Put fruit in a pan, add sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Heat until just comes to a boil and thickens up.

Butternut squash

• Cool the filling before pouring it into the pie crust.

• Brush some milk on top of the pie crust or use an egg wash to help the crust brown. You can also use a sparkling sugar on top of the crust, to add shine, sparkle and crunch. King Authur's makes it or you can get it at Sur La Tab.

• Fill crust and bake at 425℉ on a hot, preheated cookie sheet for about 20 minutes, then turn down to 350℉ and cook an addition 30-40 minutes until desired brown on the top of the pie.

Variations if desired:

• Add peach snapps or a liqueur to your pie filling

• Add a little brown sugar to pie filling

• Add some butter to the pie filling before baking.
