Making a pie in a skillet is an easy alternative to a pie pan. It always looks great, and everyone loves it! This pie has blueberries, apricots, black apricots and doughnut nectarines. Browned butter and amaretto helps bring out the rich flavor of these sumptuous fruits! A beautiful lattice crust made with my favorite butter crust dough recipe and topped with lemon zest makes for the perfect summer dessert. This pie is simply delicious! - -Forkable Blog

Shop for your fruit. Summer is a great time for fresh local produce. Here in the Midwest, we have wonderful fresh blueberries! Because its harvest time, there is a huge selection of produce. At the market, I chose apricots, black apricots and doughnut nectarines to compliment the organic blueberries.

For the filling:

1 pt of blueberries
2 lb of apricots
2 lb of black apricots
1 lb of doughnut nectarines
2 Tbl. butter browned
2 tsp. amaretto (almond liqueur)
2 Tbl. butter

Gather the ingredients for the pie dough. We need:

3 c. Flour
2 tbl. Sugar
1 3/4 tsp. Salt
1 c. butter (cold and cubed)
8 Tbl ice water
1 1/2 tsp cider vinegar

Great Instructable, It will certainly polish my pie-making skills. This doesn't matter much, but there are some spelling errors in there. Once again, Great Instructable

Love the looks of it, and so yummy. My only question is, how large a skillet? I have several and love cooking in cast iron.

You can use any size! This one is my smaller one. I think its about 8" in diameter. If you use a larger one, just make sure you have enough dough. My recipe above should be enough if you roll the dough out thin enough, but you might want to make extra just to make sure. Thanks for the comment!
That is some delish food porn! Thanks for the instructable. And I'm soo checking out your blog.

thank you for this great recipe! I can't wait to try it, you make it seem so easy and for someone who is afraid of baking that's saying a lot :)

It is easy! You just have to trust yourself and follow your own instincts. Even if you screw something up, you'll learn. Plus I've always found, the worse you screw something up, the better the story!

Hooray! Thanks for the comments, and the votes! I am soo excited. I would invite you all over for drinks if I could!
Congrats on the Judges Choice. I seemed to have missed your pie when I looked at all the entries. I love cooking in a cast iron skillet, and I really should invest in a larger one. And as I said on a few other pies, bonus points for making your own crust. Your pie looks awesome.

That looks like really good pie. The filling looks like it held together, something I've yet to witness in real life ;P

By the sizes of the ingredients, I'm assuming you do this a lot?

When I was making my filling, the fruits were really juicy, so I made sure to add a bunch of flour for it to thicken. In the summer time, its always pie time! Thanks to all for the comments!
