Labor Day Dessert!

I hope everyone had a relaxing and fun Labor Day weekend!  I had just picked up some fresh peaches, raspberries and blueberries so I decided to make a favorite deep dish rustic pie of mine with all three fruits for after the bar b que.  This was one loaded pie 4 large peaches a cup each of raspberries and blueberries, this combination of fruits makes the most delicious pie.  Not overly sweet and a half butter half crisco very tender crust.  My husband ate 2 large slices.  His comment was 'Ohhh the flavor'.

Sylvia-


I never would have considered mixing those three fruits together in a pie - until your mouth-watering picture appeared.  Your husband is to be commended for only having 2 slices!

Thank you, Larry!  It's a wonderful combination, next time I will add the extra peach and a little less blueberry...no spices were used or needed.  Mike usually goes for seconds...but then it was followed by a root beer float!!  He's a cyclist and burns up the carbs.  I wish I could say the same : (

Sylvia,


I'd say Mike deserves a medal for only having 2 slices. What a nice combination of fruits. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, Eric!  Mike loves medals...if he thought another piece of pie would make him pedal faster he would eat a whole pie!

thank you, chouette!  It was so heavy with fruit, I meant to weigh it and forgot.

Thank you, jleung!  Complimentary flavors and colors do work to make this pie one of my favorites.
