Peach pies with figs, cherries, apricots, blueberries…

It would be nearly impossible to have a “summer fresh fruit week” without a pie or two…or three.

I’m so into the refrigerated pie crust that Connor turned me onto, that I bought a half-dozen boxes when I found them on sale at Safeway.

They are in the freezer and I’m “pie-ready” for the summer!

Peach, Fig and Cherry Pie

Pie

  • 1 Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust (half a box)
  • 1 pound ripe peaches, halved, pitted, and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 1/2 pound ripe figs, stems trimmed, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 1/2 pound ripe cherries, pitted and halved
  • Zest and juice from 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Streusel Topping
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Vanilla ice cream, optional

lime zest juice

Pie: Combine the peaches, figs and cherries in a large bowl. Add in the lime zest and juice; toss to blend.

mix in flour

In a smaller bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle the flour mixture over the fruit. Fold gently, just to blend without crushing the fruit.

Sprinkle the topping evenly over the fruit. Bake in preheated oven for about 35 to 40 minutes or the top is golden brown and the fruit juices are bubbly. Let cool to warm or room temperature.

Serve with ice cream, if desired.

Peach, Apricot, Cherry & Blueberry Pie

This second pie was made the same way. I just subbed in apricots and blueberries, of the same weight, in place of the figs.

lemon zest juice

I also used lemon in place of lime and instead of plain almonds in the topping, I used the honey roasted almonds from Trader Joe’s.
