Filo Fruity Pie
This Foxy Cuisine pie was born one day shortly after I had purchased a bunch of frozen fruit on sale. Originally the fruit was intended for smoothies. But a few days had passed since I had bought the fruit and within that passage of time so did my desire to make smoothies. There I was left with a bunch of frozen fruit.
Also in my freezer was the filo dough. I might have never thought to make a pie with these combined ingredients had they not been on the same freezer shelf together. Seeing vanilla ice cream in there helped cement the concept that what I really wanted was not a smoothie, but a fruit pie with a side of ice cream and so began the designing of Filo Fruity Pie.

- Thaw a roll of filo dough. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Unroll and cover the filo sheets with plastic wrap to prevent the dough from drying out.
- Melt butter in a small bowl. Using a 9 and ½ ceramic pie pan, brush the inside of the pan with butter.
- Place one sheet of filo in the pie pan leaving a little of dough just above the pie crust edge. Brush with butter. Continue to add sheets in a rotating crisscross pattern, buttering each before lying down the next. Repeat to form a pie shell which is at least 15 sheets thick.
- Brush the edges with butter. Then bake empty shell about 10 minutes or until filo is golden brown. Cool 15 minutes.
- Mix fruits, sugar and orange juice in large bowl. Add fruit filling to pie crust.
- Place back in oven and bake for 45 minutes. Cover edge of the file crust with strips of foil (about 2-3 inches wide) after first 15 to 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning. Cool at least 2 hours before serving.
- Serve plain or add a side of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream on top of the pie.
