I have been making this pie for years. I got the recipe from a company cookbook of a place my mom used to work for years ago. The original recipe just calls for peaches, but, if I have other fruit I like to throw it in there. This recipe is very easy to make and doesn’t take a lot of ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your pantry/fridge. This is great if you are having a dinner party or if you need a dessert to take with you to a party. It is also great to make it for yourself and eat it out of the pie pan, right after it comes out of the oven! This one never lasts more than a day around here, everyone loves it.
Easy Fruit Pie
- 1 egg
- 1 cup sugar (you can reduce the amount of sugar, I rarely use a full cup)
- 1/3 cup flour
- ½ stick butter
- about 20 oz of fruit, you can use fresh, frozen (thawed), or canned (drained). I always use peaches, then whatever else I happen to have on hand. Blueberries and raspberries are my personal favorite to go with the peaches.
- frozen pre-made pie shell
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange all of the fruit in the unbaked pie shell. Mix together remaining ingredients until mixture is light and fluffy.
I like to use this trusty vintage hand mixer. I got this from my mother-in-law 17 years ago, when my husband and I first moved in our house together. I am guessing it is a late 70’s early 80’s model. It still works like a charm though, so I can’t get rid of it! I am sure that no small appliances you can buy today would ever last as long as these older models.
Once you get this all mixed up, you will spread this mixture over the fruit.
The top of the pie gets this lovely crunchy crispy topping, but the inside stays all fruity and gooey…it’s like a little piece of heaven.
