I recently made Whole Wheat Apple Pluot Pie, just perfect for I Heart Cooking Clubs theme of the week: Orchard Fruit. Picky husband and I took our three little monkeys to the u-pick apple orchard last weekend and had an amazing time. Just look at that gorgeous view of the orchard and my little sweeties...too fun :)
So while the apples in this recipe are fresh from the orchard, the pluots are from Sam's Club...wish we could have gone all local but the kids are in love with the pluots and we just have to buy them every week now.
Let it settle in before peeling off the paper and pressing the pastry onto the bottom and sides of the pan. Don't worry if the pastry tears, just patch it and press the gaps together.
Spread the apple over the bottom and put the
Dot with the rest of the butter, then fold the pastry edge in and over to cover the edge of the filling. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the top of the fruit is golden brown in places, and the pastry crisps. Serve plain or with yogurt and whipped cream. Serves 6 to 8.
This was an absolutely delicious fall fruit recipe. All three of my kids really loved this one! Picky husband gave it a try but didn't finish his piece, he is not a big stone fruit fan. I thought it was wonderful and would make it again for sure. It wasn't really sweet, but it was sweet enough to really enjoy the fruit flavors. It would be great for a brunch. I'm sure I'll be making this one again since it was such a huge hit with the kids -- I loved it too :)
