A Damn Fruity Pie!
I have been sick and very tired lately so I also cheated by using the refrigerated and prepared pie dough. I had enough to do without including a pie dough in my mission of daily accomplishments! So I simply bought the cheap package and set to work!
Very Berry Pie:
1 c blueberries
1 c raspberries
1 c strawberries, sliced
1 c rhubarb, chopped
2 c apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 c sugar
Preheat oven to 350.
prepare pie crust, if home made roll and place in a 9 in pie pan, if pre-done, unroll and place in pie pan ( simple hehe)
Mix all fruit in a large bowl, add lemon juice. Add sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon and stir gently to mix. Poor fruit into prepared pie pan. Top with second crust and seal edges. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar, cut slits in top crust to vent.
Place in 350 oven for 1- 11/2 hours, or until golden brown and bubbling.
I baked mine close to 1 1/2 hrs, I also did heaping cups of fruit, and for the next one will likely add 1/2c more of each fruit since it does cook down. I am not a fan of raspberries and feel they overpowered and next time will leave out or swap with blackberries. If I leave out I will just add more of the others to make up for it. The pie is awesome! It was so tasty and hehe my Grandma had 2 huge slices for her "dessert" right after her very light lunch haha.. Love her! Do try and definitely Enjoy it!!! It was eaten so quick no pics of slices were gotten hehe :)
