To blog about this pie or not? That’s the question. Obviously I decided to go ahead and share it with you. The filling is very tasty and although the recipe needs some tweaking to make the filling less runny it will be worth the tweaking.
I got this recipe from here . Many of the reviewers mentioned the filling being runny but I decided to make the recipe as posted and then fiddle with it in the future based on my results. I made my own crust, and that was also a mistake on my part. The filling is still hot when the pie is assembled. I used an all butter crust, and the hot filling and an all butter crust made it very difficult to assemble because of course the butter starts to melt as soon as it comes in contact with the hot filling.
Back to the filling. Next time I make this I will definitely cut back on the liquid. I think I will go down to 1/2 cup of juice from the fruit instead of the 1 cup called for in the recipe. I had more filling than would fit in a pie dish, which was fine because it was excellent on top of ice cream!
If you like a sweet/tart pie go ahead and make the recipe. The flavor combination is excellent, but definitely cut back on the liquid in the filling and use a shortening based pie crust for a pretty crust.
