I had rhubarb and blueberries in the freezer and needed the space....so I found this recipe by Rosered...Thanks !.....I didn't follow the recipe...because I didn't have Almond Paste...
after the fruit defrosted I drained the rhubarb, but not the blueberries. I had a Walmart brand of freezer 9" pie crust and a little bit of dough from a pie I had made 3 days ago. so I rolled out the dab (about a 1/4 cup) I had left and covered the pie with the look of home made first timer....LOL.... lattice work. I really liked the pie. It was just what I was looking for...very good.
Look at the pix....a firm pie. I will make this a gain...This way.
