  • 1 Recipe for Double or Single Pie Dough
  • 1 Recipe for Fruit Filling


  • Make your favorite pie filling with juicy frozen or fresh fruit (berries, pie cherries, rhubarb, etc.).
  • Mound it really high.
  • Cover with top crust and cut vents or make a lattice crust.
  • Bake in oven.
  • You will know when it is nearly done when you start to smell burning filling.
  • Open oven to release smoke.
  • Fan smoke away from smoke alarm that is now going off. (Opening windows at this time is good too.)
  • Remove pie from oven when it has bubbled over enough.
  • While pie cools, clean oven.
