Here is, the easiest pie ever and with the perfect name:
Impossible French Fruit Pie!
3 large pears, apples or peaches, peeled, cored and sliced or mix them( I used bartlett pears and will be using a package of apple cinnamon muffin mix)
1 cup blueberries mixed in with the pears, apples or peaches (whatever your using) or whatever other berries you like
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or more to taste
1/4 teaspoon each nutmeg, ginger and cloves
Note: if you aren't using the berries just omit them, you can add 1 more sliced fruit of your choice.)
Toss the fruit and spices all together in a bowl and then prepare your pie plate. Spray with an oil spray add the fruit and spice mixture to the pie plate.
Beat together in a bowl until blended:
1/2 cup muffin mix, (apple cinnamon, cinnamon, blueberry, peach, lemon or whatever you like that goes good with the fruit you pick!)
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Pour this over the top of the apple mixture.
2 tablespoons butter softened
1/2 cup muffin mix (I just use the rest of the package if there is a little more no problem)
Optional: 1/4 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)
1/4 cup brown sugar
Mix together until crumbly. Evenly spread over the batter mix and apples
Bake in a preheated oven of 325 degrees for 45 minutes or until center comes out clean using a tooth pick with a golden browned on top.
All you need is some creativity and you can make your dream pie!

I found this recipe on the Betty Crocker site and totally adapted it using a different idea. I made two pies, the one that's above pictured, is all apples with apple streusel cinnamon muffin topping. Then I adapted another by using the same kind of muffin mix but instead of using apples I added pears and blueberries below. With the addition of more spices, these pies were a great success. What an amazing transformation in the oven. To me it's a dream pie, no rolling, no crust to make and hardly any mess to clean! I have now tried this with pears, apples, peaches, blueberries and also in combination with one of more fruits in the same pie. Just buy a coordinating muffin mix, for instance, apple cinnamon mix really was perfect with this one! I think it's one of the easiest desserts you can make in a pinch. It's a quick throw together and it taste great. Add some of your favorite ice cream or whipped cream on top as a garnish and it's perfect!
