Easy Delicious Fruit Pie

During a visit to Nebraska, Dad's friend Jack gave him a bag of about 30 fresh-picked peaches. I decided to try to make a pie, and after a little googling and experimenting, came up with an easy, yummy recipe. When our ripe pears and blackberries start entering the house in buckets, I can easily make a dozen pies. I freeze some blackberries and sliced-up pears so as to spread that out over time. Pears and strawberries are another great combination. That mix reminded me of rhubarb pie, another great mix. And figs work, too!Ingredients
4-5 cups fruit, fresh or frozen: peaches, pears, apples, blackberries, strawberries, figs, or mix
Dry: 2 T flour 2 T arrowroot or cornstarch
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp nutmeg (optional)
1 T lemon juice 1 tsp vanilla

Dots of vegan butter
2 deep-dish vegan pie crusts (like Wholly Wholesome) or make a vegan pie crust
InstructionsArrange pie crust in pie pan and chill.
Cut up the fruit; no need to peel. Don't be shy, cut up a lot. It will cook …
