Well, this is a unique combination as I had some left over blueberries from making a blueberry pie and just bought some fresh peaches from the market and thought could they go together? Well, they most certainly do and what a delicious combination. The addition of ginger was something I knew from other peach pies so I added it in. The topping is a true original as I have been wanting to use up some cereal I had and I knew that if I added butter and some flour I could make a crust. It turned out delicious! I loved the combination & now I can't wait to try other Quaker oatmeal cereals too.
1Place you peaches in boiling hot water for about 15 seconds or a little longer then the peeling comes right off. Remove seed and then thinly slice the peaches. Wash your blueberries and place on a paper towel to dry. Then combine all dry ingredients for pie in a bowl and whisk together, then add the fruit and zest of lemon and toss to all is coated.
2Add your mixed fruit and other ingredients into uncooked pie crust.
3This is the oatmeal I used.
4Combine all dry ingredients for topping and cut in the butter with a pastry cutter till crumbly. (I do not have a pastry cutter so I just use a large fork.) Crumble the topping over the fruit mixture and bake for 45 to 50 minutes at 350 degrees. I place my pie on a cookie sheet covered with tin foil for easy clean up. This pie did bubble over juices, so it worked well.
5Remove pie from oven and let cool completely...if possible. We couldn't wait and cut into after 1/2 hour. LOL
6Cutting into it early causes juices to run more. If you refrigerate the pie it sets up better. Make sure you serve with some vanilla ice cream too.
