I'm on a mission to use up what I have, so I used a store-bought box of pie crust and a frozen 1 lb bag of mixed fruit. After the fruit was defrosted, there seemed to be a lot of juice, so I drained it. It didn't look like much, so I also added about a cup of defrosted blueberries. Following some suggestions, I sprinkled cornstarch and sugar on the bottom of the crust. Into the fruit mixture I added about 2/3 cup of sugar, about 1/4 cup of cornstarch, and a few shakes of cinnamon. After attaching the top crust, I made various slits around and cut out a 1-inch circle in the middle (you could actually see the insides bubbling in there when I took it out of the oven!). I just sprinkled the top with white sugar and a little cinnamon. Baked at 350 for 20 min, then covered the crust edges with foil and baked just over an hour. Some reviewers mentioned it was runny, so I cooled it, covered with foil and placed into the refrig (planning to have tomorrow), but couldn't wait and had it after ~3 hrs. Sliced beautifully with no runnyness, good sweetness and perfect tartness. It was great with vanilla ice cream! Nice comfort food during the beginnings of a blizzard! Thanks Jenn!
