Bountiful Harvest (Shake N Bake) Fruit Pie Filling

Bountiful Harvest (Shake N Bake) Fruit Pie Filling created by 2Bleu

Got a bushel or two of peaches, apples, berries, etc? OAMC!!! A fresh fruit ready (home)made pie filling that you simply defrost, pour into pie crust and bake for wonderful pies, cobblers, etc. Great for gift giving also. I've done this tequnique for years and it's always been a no fail recipe. This recipe multiplies easily so double, triple, etc. away depending on how much fruit you have to use.

Ready In:
30mins
Serves:
Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 ziploc bag (gallon or 1/2 gallon size)
  • 34 cup sugar
  • 12 cup flour
  • 14 teaspoon cinnamon (or nutmeg)
  • 1 dash salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cubed small
  • 5 cups fresh fruit, peeled and sliced if necessary (about 5 peaches or apples)

directions

  • To the ziploc bag, add all ingredients to bag except fruit.
  • Mix well, then add the fruit. Blend well by tossing, shaking, and gently kneading the bag until all the fruit is coated. Careful as not to bruise the fruit (especially berries).
  • Place flat in the freezer. Repeat and stack in freezer till your bounty is used up. NOTE: If you have pie pans, you can place the bag into the pie pans to freeze (remove pie pan after the contents are fully frozen, and that way they are already shaped to a pie pan. When ready, just place into a pie crust, lay top crust over, and bake as a frozen pie. (similar to baking a Mrs. Smith frozen pie).
  • TO BAKE: Take out a bag of fruit filling and thaw on counter. When thawed, Pour filling into pie crust. Top with additional crust if using (or crumble mix for cobbler). Preheat oven to 400°F Bake for about 40 minutes or until top crust is golden brown. Place on rack to cool.

    I live in the Pacific Northwest. I love this recipe. I use it for blackberry, apple, and peach pies.

    Fabulous! I made a peach pie with cinnamon and it was just delicious. I topped it with a crumb topping and I can't wait to try it with apples. Made for Please Review My Recipe cooking tag game.

    What a great recipe! I tried this last year and I am using it again this year. I buy big bags of "deer apples" in the fall (apples that have hit the ground in the orchards and they can't sell as perfects so the sell them as deer feed) much cheaper than in the stores and I make my pie filling and applesauce from them as they get cut up anyway. Around here deer apples sell for about $7.00 for 25 - 30#. Anyhow this filling is very good... I add a little more cinnemon and nutmeg along with some mace to mine. Thanks for sharing this.

    There are only two of us and we don't always want to eat the same dessert 3 nights in a row, so I divided in half and put equal amounts into two quart sized zip locks. Thank you 2Bleu for sharing.
