Easy as PIE - Fruit pie

Featured
Here's an easy and fresh way to make a fruit pie. A great pie starts with a good flaky crust. When I have time, I make it from scratch. There are plenty recipes out there, but if you don't have the time or haven't had luck - use a store bought refrigerated package of crust. It's quick and easy. You can use the fruits you have on hand (fresh or frozen) - the freshness comes from baking it fresh without a lot of fuss. Use just one fruit like apples if you like. You don't even need a pie pan for this recipe.

1. Carefully unroll the pie crust.
2. Spoon out the fruit filling (do not use the extra liquid)
3. add a couple dabs of butter
4. roll up the side of the "pie"
(You don't need a rolling pin and don't handle the dough too much - that's what keeps the crust flaky and it shouldn't have any holes.

Step 4: Bake it - 350

1. Put the pie in the center rack in the oven
2. Turn down the heat to 350 degrees F. (it was preheated to 425)
3. Bake for 15-20 minutes (I use an insulated cookie sheet which takes about 20 minutes, but my other pan browns a few minutes sooner.)
4. Take it out and rest it a minute

Step 5: Enjoy
