Passed down over years, you can use almost any fruits for this pie. Tastes like you're eating summer. I have used regular pie crust and ready-made, but the cookie crust in the recipe works best.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This fresh fruit pie recipe is perfect for summer! The fruit combinations are limitless. We opted for strawberries, mango, blackberries, peaches and bananas - it was perfect. But use a combination of fruits that are freshest or your family loves. I really like the extra zing the orange juice adds to this fruit pie recipe. This will be great served at any BBQ or picnic.
