A favorite with fresh fruit served with ice cream or whipped cream you have the perfect beginning or end of summer dessert. These flavors just work perfect together. During the winter months feel free to use drained canned fruits or frozen.
3 or 4 sliced peaches skin removed
2 fresh red or any other pears sliced and skins removed
peach, pear or apricot jam
2 crusts or pie dough homemade or store bought
pie crust cutters for leaves ( purchased at a specialty baking store)
Roll out pie crusts one large round saving some for the leaf edges or other cookie cutter you like.
In a medium bowl mix the fruit together.
Add to the center of the pie dough and pour warm jam over the top. Bring the edges up crimping all towards the center. Place the leaves along the crimped edges and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake at 400 degrees until browned for around 35 to 45 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream.
