I tried to make a 3 berry pie using frozen fruit, but the recipe wasn't clear about how long to thaw the fruit before stirring it into a boiled cornstarch mixture of water, lemon juice, and vanilla. The filling set up too much and the result was a pie that didn't taste bad, but had a rubbery texture, a little too gelled. I also overbaked the crust, so the whole thing was a flop. Does anyone have any fool proof, good recipes using frozen fruit? I need to know how long to thaw and what thickener would be best. I'd like to make a blueberry/raspberry/peach pie using all frozen fruit.
Thanks for your help. With the holidays coming up, I'd like to be bring something to company dinners that looks nice and tastes really good. Oh yes, one other thing. I plan to make a crumble topping for the pie rather than a 2 crust pie. Any good topping recipes???
