Summer fruit is hitting the markets and I am in pie heaven. There are so many beautiful choices now and the combinations to put into a pie crust are endless. If I wrote a recipe for every fruit pie I made, you would see that the foundation for each one is the same. So, rather than give you lots of variations of the same recipe, I thought I would give you the base formula for building your perfect pie.
Pie Eyed is all about helping you make pie and enjoy doing it. We want your pie making to become intuitive so you can be one with your kitchen and crank out pies like a rock star. Less stress, more zen. Learning the mechanics of a successful fruit pie will free you of recipes and allow you to get creative as you find new things available at the markets this summer.
Fruit, sugar, lemon, vanilla, cornstarch, spices, rinse repeat.
Here’s how it goes down in my kitchen:
Done and done!

One thought on "Your Formula for Summer Fruit Pie"
I love this post, Em! I’ve been thinking of writing something similar. Don’t forget almond extract in place of vanilla for sour cherry pies…yum! I have a few variations of crumble toppings to add to this list (because you know I can’t have them add much sweetness so I’ve experimented with flavors I like), but those will have to come in future posts! 🙂
