  • 1 pkg Tenderflake® Regular Pie Shell

  • 2 tbsp coarse sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) coarse sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon

directions

  1. Flatten a thawed pastry shell and use flower shaped cookie cutters to make cut-outs. Reroll any scraps and use to make remaining shapes.
  2. In large bowl, combine fruit, sugar, tapioca, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla and let stand 15 minutes.
  3. In small bowl, whisk together egg and milk
  4. Fill bottom crust with fruit mixture and top decoratively with pastry flowers and leaves, overlapping slightly. Brush with egg mixture and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake in a 400°F (205°C) oven for 25 min. Reduce heat to 350°F (176°C) and bake just until curst is golden and juices are bubbling, about 30 minutes. Allow pie to cool for at least one hour before slicing.
