'Apples, peaches, pears and plums; tell me when your birthday comes!' How many times did I play this skipping game as a child, and never thought to combine those fruits until now. It's such a fresh-tasting combination of flavours. Great on its own, or enjoy a slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry.

  • Whisk sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a small bowl; sprinkle 1/4 cup of sugar mixture over pastry in pie plate.

  • Stir apples, peaches, pears, plums, and ginger together in a bowl; sprinkle with lemon juice and stir to distribute. Place fruit mixture in pie plate; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Cover with pastry, pinch to seal top and bottom crusts together, and cut a few slits in top pastry with a sharp knife. Alternatively, cover with a lattice crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes; reduce temperature to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and continue baking until crust is golden and filling has thickened, about 35 minutes. Cool completely before serving.

Cook's Note:

If fruit is very juicy, you may need to increase the flour amount by 1 tablespoon.

I made this pie late in the evening so it's problems may have been down to my own tiredness and inexperience. I'm not a fan of tropical mixtures and this pie was completely tropical. (Really tangy) I think I'll just risk a plum pie next time since the plum was what I wanted to taste. I didn't taste any. The baking time wasn't quite long enough and I didn't notice until it was cooled the next morning. Plus the filling was completely runny once it cooled. The night before it was thicker almost goo. But in the morning it was tangy soup. Oh well I couldn't eat it but my brother could so 2 stars. Read More

I made this pie for a family gathering and everyone raved about it. Raved I tell you. I created the recipe it was great the first time I made it and it was a huge hit the most recent time. It will remain one of my favourite go-to pie recipes. Read More
