No-Bake Fruit Pie

Since the husbands are out of town for the weekend, a couple of us decided to pool our resources - both food and patience - and have dinner together.  The kids had a blast.  They literally ran in circles around the kitchen island.  Even the babies were having fun... Scarlett just sat smiling in her exersaucer, like she was watching the best tennis match ever.

My contribution was dessert.  I made a No-Bake Fruit Pie from a promotional Foodland Ontario flyer that I picked up at the grocery store checkout.  It was delicious.  Thank you Government of Ontario... you may have just earned a re-election vote from me thanks to this recipe.

Recipe below...


No-Bake Peach and Raspberry Pie
From Foodland Ontario
(thanks to K&K Test Kitchen for already typing this recipe out.)

Crust
1-1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup margarine

Filling
3 cups fresh, peeled, pitted, and sliced peaches
1 cup raspberries
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup cold water
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Whipped topping
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a bowl,  mix together graham cracker crumbs and margarine.  Press the crumb mixture into a pie dish.  Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes.  Let the pie crust cool while you prepare the fruit.

In a bowl, combine peaches and raspberries.  Remove one cup of the the fruit into another bowl and crush with a potato masher.

In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch.  Gradually stir in water and crushed fruit.  Cook, stirring, over medium heat until just beginning to boil.  Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring, for 3 to 5 minutes or until thickened.  Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.  Chill until just warm.  Stir in remaining fruit.  Spoon onto pie crust.  Chill for 2 to 3 hours.  Just before serving, whip cream with maple syrup until stiff peaks form.  Serve the pie with the maple whipped cream.
