Whether you’re hosting a family gathering or simply craving a homemade dessert, this recipe is sure to please.


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup ice water
  • 5 cups fresh fruit (e.g. apples, berries, peaches)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Start by making the pie crust. In a large bowl, combine the flour and butter. Use a pastry cutter or your hands to work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Sprinkle the ice water over the flour mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork until the dough comes together.
  3. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  5. In a large bowl, toss the fresh fruit with the sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and salt.
  6. Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface and transfer it to a pie dish.
  7. Add the fruit filling to the pie crust and top with another layer of crust or pie lattice.
  8. Trim and crimp the edges of the pie and cut slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  9. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the filling is bubbling.
  10. Allow the pie to cool before serving.
