Drupey Pie

Recipe by  

"I added fresh, ripe nectarines and apricots to this sour cherry pie. These fruits are drupe fruits meaning they are fleshy with a hard stone or seed in the middle. The pie was summery and delicious! I really like to use turbinado sugar--it's less processed and has a good flavor--but white sugar would be fine, too."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Place cherries, nectarines and apricots into a colander to drain off any excess liquid.
  2. To Make Dough: In a medium bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut 3/4 cup of butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Pour in one tablespoon of water at a time until the dough sticks together. Add additional water if necessary. Divide dough into two parts. Roll out one half toa circle 1/8 of an inch thick, then place in a 9 inch pie pan. Roll out the other half of the dough and cut into long strips about 1/2 inch wide. Set aside.
  3. To Make Filling: Place the drained fruit mixture into a medium bowl, Stir in the sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch and flour; pour into the prepared pie pan. Dot with the remaining two tablespoons of butter. Arrange the pastry strips into a lattice top and crimp edges. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolk and teaspoon of water, and use a pastry brush to coat just the lattice strips--not the edges.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes, until the crust begins to brown. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake for an additional 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool a bit before serving.

This recipe is a great base. For the fruit I used fresh nectarines and fresh blueberries. For the crust I used already made crust. I used another review and doubled the cornstarch. Then as the topping I combined 1 cup oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 6 T. flour, 1/2 cup butter in a bowl and blended the ingredients with my fingers until it was crumbly. I baked it as directed and my husband and I were in hog heaven!! It reminded me of the crisp desserts you find at Claim Jumper. Mmmmm! Thank you for the great recipe.

This was good, I didn't have any cherries on me so added extra apricot. My only problem was even though I strained the fruit, when they cooked they became quite juicy, so I think a little more flour/cornstarch is needed in the fruit mix, but apart from that this was great.

Very good recipe, I too added more cornstarch to allow for the extra juicy fruit. I have used variations of this recipe with any of our orchard fruit, including huckleberries which pair up nicely with apricots or peaches

I used my mom's crust recipe and a crumb topping, but the fruit flavor was terrific. I think I will call the pie by a different name, though, since "Drupey" sounds so unappealing.

What a pie! Everything about it works - the flavors of the fruits together with a tiny bit of cinnamon. Some people might want it sweeter - but if you want a pie that puts wonderful fruit flavors first make this as is. If I were to make any changes, I might add 2 Tbsp of cornstarch to the fruit, because it was a little on the liquidy side. I will make this again, and I will make it again often. This is a new favorite - thanks!
