Step 4: Assemle Filling

Slice peeled apricots around the pits. Slice nectarines around the pits. Place sliced fruit in a bowl.

Add rinsed blueberries.
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp lemon zest.

Add 2-4 tablespoons of flour to the filling depending on how much liquid is being released by the fruit. If your filling seems super juicy add more flour. The flour will help you filling thicken so you don't end up with pie soup.

Brown butter. Over medium heat, place 2 Tbs of butter in a saute pan. Saute butter until it becomes a rich brown color. Add 1 tsp of Amaretto and remove from heat.

Add Browned butter to filling.
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.
Yes! Thank you!
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 <em>really</em> good pie. The filling looks like it held together, something I've yet to witness in real life ;P<br/><br/>By the sizes of the ingredients, I'm assuming you do this a lot?<br/>
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!
Mmm, that looks so good... And my dad has a lot of cast-iron skillet, so I can make the pie! 1+ vote!
mmm... Looks really good. Nice job on the pictures too.
This may be the most delicious-looking pie I've ever seen. Thanks so much for sharing in detail! I can't wait to try this out.
