Cherry-Berry Peach Pie Recipe

Cherry-Berry Peach Pie Recipe

I had an overabundant supply of cherries one year, so I adapted several recipes to use them up. I knew this one was a keeper when I received phone calls from my Mother and Grandmother complimenting me on this pie.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons cold water
  • FILLING:
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen sliced peaches, thawed
  • 1-3/4 cups pitted fresh dark sweet cherries or 1 can (15 ounces) pitted dark sweet cherries, drained
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half. Roll out one portion to fit a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate; transfer to pie plate. Trim pastry even with edge of plate; set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the peaches, cherries, blueberries and extracts. Combine the sugar, flour, tapioca, salt and nutmeg; sprinkle over fruit and gently toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  • 3. Spoon filling into crust. Dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry; make a lattice crust. Seal and flute edges.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 50-55 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 6-8 servings.
