For this Peach-Berry Deep Dish Pie we most often use fresh berries and fresh peaches. We are luck enough to live in an area where there are many berry farms and in season we can use fresh. The fresh peaches are available from the Okanogan and have a fairly lengthy season.
Another variation of this pie is to use blue berries with the peaches.

Ingredients for Peach-Berry Deep Dish Pie

  • 19-oz. can Peach Slices
  • 15-oz. pkg. Frozen Raspberries
  • 1½ Tbsp quick cooking Tapioca
  • 1 Tbsp Brandy (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • Pastry for 1-crust 9-inch pie
  • Light Cream
  • Sugar

Method for Peach-Berry Deep Dish Pie

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Have ready an 8-inch glass-baking pan.

Drain peaches, saving juice. Combine peach slices and raspberries in baking dish.
Combine peach juice and tapioca in smaller sauce pan, cover and cook gently until tapioca is transparent, about 10 minutes.
Stir in brandy if desired and cool to lukewarm. Pour over fruit in pan. Dot with butter.
Roll pastry into a square slightly larger than pan and lay on top of fruit. Turn edges of pastry under and press firmly to sides of pan to seal well. Brush pastry with light cream and sprinkle generously with sugar. Cut slashes in the pastry to let steam escape.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until pastry is browned. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream if desired. (Serves 6.)
