Great recipe! Made this today in a 10 inch pie plate using a frozen, pre-made crust and a total of 7 cups of fruit. (3c fresh strawberries, 1.5c fresh blueberries, 1.5c diced tart apples, and 1c frozen cherries (thawed
My husband and I made this pie together. We had two cups of sliced strawberries, 2 cups of rhubarb and 1 cup of blueberries in the refrigerator so we substituted that for the 5 fruits specified in the recipe. We also used a double frozen pie shell that we had in the freezer. We basted the top crust with the half and half cream that was described in the recipe. Our pie was a hit and would make it again with the fruits we used or a combination of others.
I used all fresh fruit and measured accurately and found the pie to have a little more liquid than I would have liked but it wasn't soupy. The tapioca and cornstarch thickened it enough. I may add a titch more tapioca next time. The crust was easy and good. My husband dubbed it the "perfect pie" before it was in the oven. :) Nice change from the usual pies. Everyone seemed to enjoy and it is deemed a keeper in our house.
My husband and I Love Love Love this pie. It is our all time favorite from now on. I am not a good pie maker and this one came out perfect. Really delicious.
I made this pie with a premade pie crust and used egg whites to brush the top. I had a larger pie pan, so I doubled the pie crust as well as the fruit. Since some of the fruit was frozen and some was fresh, I drained off the frozen and added extra cornstarch and tapioca. Family loved this recipe, and requested I make it again.

I made this pie just as directed in the recipe. It was wonderful, everyone loved it. I will for sure make it again.
I've been making this pie for over 40 years only our family calls it "fruit of the forest" and gets all sorts of compliments. You can also substitute your favorite fruits for the one's used in this recipe. I've used pears, peaches, blackberries, in combination with these in this recipe.
I used a premade crust, but my family loved this pie. Even the "non" pie eaters liked it!
Definitely a "keeper"!! Forgot to say that I made it as a strawberry pie using about 5 cups of strawberries. It was great!
