Intro: Pie on the Fly
This pie was created out of pure desperation. One night my dad had a serious sweet tooth but there wasn't anything in the house sweet to eat, or he thought. So my mom came to the rescue by throwing some things together and like all great things she "accidentally" came up with a now family favorite pie!
Step 1: Ingredients
- One frozen pie shell
- A jar of canned peaches or any fruit really
- One package of some sort of flavored muffin mix, we usually use jiffy ( but I was all out) and my favorite is raspberry
- about 1/2 cup sugar
- a few tablespoons of flour or cornstarch
Step 2: Pie Filling
Dump your fruit in a bowl, if it is really liquidy you will want to dump out half of the liquid. Add about a 1/4 cup of sugar and a few tablespoons of flour and this will thicken it while cooking. Then dump mixture into your pie shell (I forgot to take a picture of this step but you can imagine)
Step 3: Topping
Next you will pour your muffin mix in a bowl along with about a 1/4 cup of sugar and enough butter to make a nice crumble. I never measure this so you will just have to add a little and maybe add a little more til you get a consistency you like. Lastly take your crumble and drop little dollops all over the top of the pie. Now it is ready to be cooked.
Step 4: Cook
Lastly cook at 375F degrees, and it will take about a half hour or so. When your crumble is golden brown and hardened it should be done. Always keep checking because every bodies oven cooks differently. When you serve it, it doesn't keep pie shape quite like other pies it kind of takes on a cobbler effect and maybe be fairly juicy. But it all tastes amazing together!
Try all kinds of combinations of flavors, it has been fun trying out different fruits with different berry flavored muffin mixes.
