Original recipe yields 1 pie

Directions

  1. Line 8 inch pie plate with heavy foil or freezer wrap letting it extend 5 inches beyond rim. Add the 1 quart filling.
  2. Loosely cover filling with the lining foil or paper. Freeze until firm. When firm, remove from pie plate and wrap tightly. Return frozen pie filling to freezer.
  3. To prepare pie for baking: For each pie prepare a two crust pastry. Line 9 inch pie plate with pastry. Remove freezer wrap from frozen shaped pie filling. Place in pastry lined 9 inch pan. Dot with 1 tablespoon butter and, if desired, sprinkle with cinnamon. Adjust top crust and finish pie as usual. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 1 hour or until syrup boils with heavy bubbles that do not burst.
  4. Note: With such fruits as peaches, pears or cherries, stir about 1/2 teaspoon ascorbic acid into sugar before combining with fruit.

I haven't used this exact recipe, but I have been freezing fresh fruit for pies like this for years. Works great everytime. Even make pies out of pears and it tastes like apple pie. Fools many people.

This is outstanding - we have a very bountiful peach tree and the first time we harvested I was overwhelmed with what to do with all the peaches. I made several of these pie fillings, stacked them in the deep freeze, and we have enjoyed "fresh" peach pie all year long! Pretty special - and SO convenient! The only comment is that the pie often needed to cook quite a lot longer than the recipe indicated (sometimes 2+ hours). When baking, I wait until the filling makes slow bubbles that do not burst- just like with any pie. This recipe is a GREAT idea!

I used mixed berries and cooked the filling on the stovetop (per cooking instructions on the tapioca box) for a coffee cake filling. The measurements of lemon juice and sugar were perfect, but it was heavy on the tapioca, as this turned out way too thick once it cooled, almost congealed. I had to add a considerable amount of water, which obviously would not have been possible once the pie was already baked! I don't think I'll be using this recipe again, either as a filling for coffee cake or pie.
