My Arizona Sun Pie Sweet With A Little Spice

I made a homemade crust but you can used packaged prepared crust if you choose!

I had about 4 small ripe peaches and a 1-1/4 cup of blueberries to use up so here is what I created…

I call it “Arizona Sun Pie”. Mix peeled sliced peaches and washed, air dried blueberries with, 3/4 cup of granulated sugar, 1/4 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt. Mix well! 

I made a double pie crust recipe…  Spray pie plate with non stick cooking spray. Roll and place pie crust into the bottom of 9 in pie plate. Prick the bottom and sides of the crust with a fork tines.

Pour the fruit mixture into pastry lined pie plate. Roll top crust to about 1/4 in. thick. Take a small knife and cut pastry in a wavy pattern 1/4 in thick slices lengthwise. Assemble wavy strips onto pie. Using remaining  pastry scraps, roll into a 1/4 in thick sheet. I used assorted sun shaped biscuit cutters for random decorative adornment. You can use any cookie cutter of choice to decorate on and in between the pastry strips. 

Make egg wash… I used one egg white and 1 Tablespoon of water. Using a fork, whip egg white and water together till frothy.

Spread on crust using a pastry brush. 


3 Tablespoons of granulated sugar

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

A pinch (big or small, you choose) ground cayenne pepper! Mix well and sprinkle onto the egg washed crust!

*Notice the rather dark edges, it gives the name even more meaning to the title. 

Bake in 400 degree oven for 45-50 min… 

Cool, serve with ice cream or whipped topping

On a quest to see all that I can be now. I am a musician, singer/ songwriter. In the process of trying to become marketable. Please visit and subscribe to my YouTube channel Would love to make money doing what I love! I love to do many domestic things also. Nothing I do seems to be profitable. Guess I am at a point in life that I would like to be compensated . My whole life I have given freely. I recently had a the wonderful opportunity to submit my music to Warner Bros Records for consideration to the label! They liked my music but requested that I get in the game by acquiring 20k followers. Appearantly, that what it takes to get signed to a major label! Sure WB, I'm working on it! You have to have a huge following to land a recording contract. Gone are the days where a label can and will make you...
