Arne’s Fabulous Fruit of the Forest Pie

You can make one of these famous fruit pies at home.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white sugar (or to taste)
  • 6 heaping tablespoons cornstarch (or substitute dry tapioca per package directions)
  • 5 large baking apples peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 16-ounces bag fresh or frozen unsweetened halved strawberries, drained
  • 1 16-ounces bag fresh or frozen red raspberries, drained
  • 1 16-ounces bag fresh or frozen blackberries, drained
  • 1 16-ounces bag fresh or frozen rhubarb, drained
  • 2 recipe double pie crust

Instructions

In a large mixing bowl, stir together sugar and cornstarch (or tapioca).

Add fruit; gently tossing until berries are coated. When using frozen fruit allow fruit mixture to stand for 15 to 30 minutes or until fruit is thawed.

Line a 9-inch pie plate with half of the pastry. Stir berry mixture, and transfer half to the crust lined pie plate. Top with second crust, seal and crimp the edge. Repeat with second pie. To prevent over browning, cover the edge of the pie with foil.

Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 25 minutes when using fresh fruit, 50 minutes for frozen fruit. Remove foil. Bake for an additional 20 to 30 minutes, or until the top is golden. Cool on a wire rack.

    I just finished making it. It was freaking phenomenal I used Frozen peaches, frozen berry mix and frozen rhubarb, with fresh pears and Granny smith apples. I added some cinnamon and a touch of allspice… it was just what i was looking for.

    I made Arne’s Fabulous Fruit of the Forest Pie today, but it sure wasn’t fabulous. The juices from the fruit did not firm up. Considering it is pretty costly to make, I am sorry I didn’t follow my hunch and add butter. When it didn’t turn out, I checked my cookbooks and did find all apple or berry pies call for equal quantities of butter to cornstarch or flour. To insure the berries don’t get crushed, next time I will layer the fruit into the pie shell sprinkling the sugar and cornstarch between the layers, then dot with butter on the top before adding the top crust.
