Triple Fruit Pie Recipe

Triple Fruit Pie Recipe

My goal is to create pies as good as my mother's. I came up with this recipe to use up fruit in my freezer. The first time I made it, my family begged for seconds. If I continue making pies this good, maybe someday our two daughters will be striving to imitate mine! -Jeanne Freybler, Grand Rapids, Michigan
