Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter a 9 inch pie pan. Set aside.

  2. Press dough into the buttered pie pan and chill in the freezer for at least 30 minutes, covered.   This dough can be frozen up to a week if you want to make the crust ahead of time. 

For the pie:

  2. Add flour, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, allspice and lemon to fruits in bowl.   Toss pie filling so everything is combined.

  3. Using a fork, poke a few holes in the bottom of the frozen pie crust and then pour the fruit filling into the pie crust.  

  4. Bake for 60 minutes or until the filling is bubbling and crust is golden brown.  

  5. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving.   Sprinkle powdered sugar on top if desired.
