You’ll Love This Fruit Pot Pie Recipe With a No-Fuss Crust

Pie is one of the trickiest desserts for me to make, so I typically just avoid them at all costs. But with this simple idea, you can cook up seasonal fruit, making pretty, personal-sized fruity pot pies in a matter of minutes.

Fruit, a few baking basics, and puffed pastry is all that’s needed for this simple idea. The fruit gets tossed in a big bowl with flour, sugar, and butter, then spooned into large ramekins.

Have a variety of fruit favorites? It’s easy to make four different flavored fruit pot pies at the same time. Simply toss 1 1/2 cups of fruit filling with 1 1/2 Tablespoons butter, 1 Tablespoon flour and 2 Tablespoons sugar, and you’ll have four tiny pies, all in different flavors. I tried it with peaches, cherries, raspberries and blackberries, and blueberries, and it worked like a charm with every fruit!

The secret to no-fuss pie crust: Instead of making a crust, this recipe shortcuts the prep process, using rounds of puffed pastry to drape atop the fruit filling. A quick brush of butter, a sprinkle of sparkling sugar, and your pies are ready to bake.

Once out of the oven, enjoy warm. Or top with ice cream for even more goodness, and serve with a spoon.
