Fabulous Fruit Pie Delights
No matter the time of year, a fruit pie is a great way to end any meal. The best thing about fruit pies is that fruit pies can use fresh or frozen fruit, unlike other baked goods. With over 185 million pies sold every year, it’s easy to see why this is a favorite dessert.
Since 1945, Wawona has held the firm belief that freezing fresh fruit allows for optimum color, sweetness, and texture. That means that unlike canned fruit, Wawona’s frozen fruit will mimic fresh-picked fruit and is perfect for pies all year round.
Traditionally a summer favorite sometimes served with rhubarb or whipped cream. These pies are known to be open-topped, meaning they only require a bottom crust.
Normally a two-crust style pie, but sometimes it is made with a crumble topping. This sweet pie is a southern favorite where peach trees grow in the warmer weather and are excellent picnic pies.
Mixed Berry Pie
A winter favorite. This pie also makes use of a top and bottom crust. Commonly you will find blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries in any combination in a mixed berry pie. Normally a hearty pie served with whipped cream or ice cream.
