How to succeed at pie making without really trying

Take one semi-lazy baker.

One text conversation about desserts.

And 1 hour.

What do you get?

Mixed Fruit Pie.

This recipe will make 2 pies.

  • 5 cups of random frozen fruit from said baker’s freezer
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (or preferred flour)
  • 1-1/2 to 2 cups sugar (depending on how sweet you like your pie)
  • 3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoon butter or margarine or cooking oil

Mix all of the above together in a bowl.  Make sure to mix it well.

2 pre-made pie crusts or homemade crust  (see links below)

Gluten Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free Pie Crust *the recipe is half way down the post…scroll down*

1 crumble topping

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup butter, margarine or cooking oil , melted

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Pour the filling into the pie crusts.

Sprinkle any left over flour-sugar-spice mixture over the frozen fruit.  Place the crumble topping over the fruit.

Pat down gently to make a nice crust.

Bake for about 45 minutes or until done.  Once a knife can be inserted into the center of the pie with little to no resistance your pie is done.

Allow pie to fully cool before cutting for best results.




  1. I’m okay with this up til the “let it cool before eating” part. I always have trouble with that bit. 🙂 this pie looks great.

    • Me too! That’s why my pie slice looks a little runny. I. Could. Not. Wait.

  2. Lovely!

  3. Great recipe you have there, thanks for sharing! =)
    Really like bakes that can be completed in an hr or so, convenient!

    • All pies should be quick. The quicker they bake, the quicker we can eat them.

    Thanks for sharing my gf/soy free/df pie crust here as well…I can see swapping the flour in the fruit with arrowroot powder and the flour/oats in the crumb topping with almond flour for a perfectly delicious gluten-free version. I have a feeling pie is on the list of baking items for this weekend. Thanks!

    • Thank you for having a great GFSFDF pie crust recipe! My hope was to make the pie recipe easy to convert to GF or Vegan.

  5. Nice “recipe” at the beginning. =D

  6. Awesomesauce!
