It was my sister's fault that I made a Four Square Pie with apples, pumpkin, peaches, and cherries.
She has this way about getting me excited about recipes like this.
The recipe is all over on the internet, but my sister first saw it on Cooking With Chef Bryan.
His looks way better than mine and I made some changes, but it was still delicious and fun!
A layer of parchment paper underneath made removing slices easy.
I added some topping to the apple slices and since there was a bit left, I put it
over part of the pumpkin. Seriously, I loved it on the pumpkin!
The topping I made:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
I used a can of Pumpkin Pie Mix (not the pureed pumpkin) with two eggs, no milk.
It was really good!
An egg wash of one egg and one tablespoon of water mixed together and brushed over the pastry
made it look a nice golden color. *A HUGE TIP: I highly recommend putting something
underneath the pan while it is baking to avoid a messy clean-up from the bubbling over fillings.
It took a little less than 45 minutes at 350 degrees to bake. Times may vary in other altitudes.
My pie crust was a package from the store and tasted a lot better than what I would have made.
This won't be the last time I make it and I'll be experimenting with different fillings next time.
While checking out the internet for Four Square Pies I saw one with pecan pie in a section...yum!
This recipe allows for all kinds of varieties for a crowd with a love of pies.
