This year I made more than just a apple pie  I had more fruit  and better enhance flavor seasons to make my pie stand out  It was pretty easy to make . Instead of  burning out my oven cooking too many desserts ,like thanksgiving, I decide to make one simple dessert.

Fruit pie

I started out by adding the nuts and slice peach ito the can of the strawberry pie filling . Sit in the refrigerator till ready for use . Then in a small skillet I add a 2 tbs of margerine and a half a cup of water . Under a low flame I add 1 sprinkle of nutmeg and 2 sprikle on cinnamon. Very light-handed I must advise. Too much will destroy the flavor Then  I slice the green apples (double slice) then add them into the sauce .Double slice is slice then slice in half. This way the apples is not chopped or to big of a slice. If using a fresh peach you can either add them to the apples or the strawberries, which ever you prefer the peach more flavor towards.  Now when the apples or half done cut it off and let it simmers.. The crust, usually is what bakers start first but since I’m not using hand made dough I use it after my filling is ready for use. Pillsbury pie crust e already refrigerated so there is no problem making sure its maturity. So , I have the pie crust layed out and ready  I set it on top  of the stove  Getting a  little warmth from the oven preheat at 350 degrees. Mean while I take out the can of strawberries and poured into the skillet. Slowly stir the strawberries,nuts and peaches with the apples and carmel. Just enough to somewhat blend in the flavor Then I pour into the pie crust . Top crust and bake  under 375 degrees for about thirty minutes. Let cool . My kids and I love it !! It went well with icecream and cool whip.

Enjoy!!!

It’s hot now but fall is right around the corner. That means cold and flu. Well last year around November, I made ginger apple pie. It’s pretty easy to make. Nothing like food that can cure a cold.

Pie crust. Some brands like Pillsbury makes them just right. But by scratch, you’ll need 2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder. 1egg. Knead the dough. I always want to make my crust a nice golden color ,for this I use 2 egg yolks. Up to you.

I minced ginger to a handful amount. Set aside. Then I prepare my apple filling. Sometimes I use the can but for colds I use fresh green  granny apples. I slice them thin . Throw them in a saucepan  fill with 1/3 of water, 2 tabs of margarine or butter,and a pinch of cinnamon. I add the ginger.Add 1 cup or a half a cup of sugar& let it simmer for only ten minutes. Then pour the filling into the pie crust. Let bake under 375 degrees for about 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool for about ten. Enjoy!
