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.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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. We really like the extra zing the orange juice adds to this fruit pie recipe. This will be delicious served at any BBQ or picnic.
