Do you see all those different colors? Each one has it's own flavor, this was a fun pie!
I even used my LeCreuset Paddy O' Pie Bird:@)
Two cans at 98¢ each... that's less than $2 for a fruit pie in winter folks.
Fruit Cocktail Pie
double pie crust
2 (15 oz) cans fruit cocktail, drained-I used 100% natural juice
1/2 C sugar
3 Tblsp A/P flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon-I'd use a little more next time
fresh nutmeg, a few hearty grates
- Add bottom crust to pie plate.
- Mix fruit, sugar, flour and spices in skillet. Heat on stove until it just begins to thicken.
- Remove from heat and pour into bottom crust.
- Add top crust and poke with fork to vent (or use a pie vent).
- Bake at your normal pie crust temperature for approximately 50-60 minutes, or until golden brown. My homemade shortening crust bakes at 400 degrees, store bought crust is around 375 degrees.
- As soon as I added sugar to the drained fruit it began to release a ton of liquid, so I used 3 Tblsp flour and heated the fruit mixture on the stove until it just began to thicken.
- Is this going to bump apple pie out of first place in my son's eyes? I don't think so, but it's very tasty and it was fun to try something new!
