52 Pies in 2012























We rated Pie #25 Mixed Dried Fruit Pie on a scale of 1 - 5:

Taste - 4.25
Crust - 4.25
Appearance - 4.5
Overall - 4.33

We really liked this pie but will cut the fruit in smaller pieces next time we make it. Also, we'll add more flour to the filling as the bottom crust was a little soggy. We found this recipe in the current issue of Midwest Living and will definitely try it again.
