Grilled Fruit Pie

Fresh Fruit Grilled Pie…
Grill a fruit pie on one of your RV camping adventures. You can convert your grill into an oven for many things just by inverting and elevating a heat friendly ‘metal pan’ placed onto the grill.  Next place the pan with the food item to be baked on top of the inverted pan. Viola!  This method works well for many recipes with a few exceptions.

Ingredients

2  9″ pie tins or other grill friendly pan

2 2/3 cups sliced fresh fruit
1/4 cup sugar or agave syrup
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup jam
1 ready made pie crust

Directions
1. Purchase a pie dough in an aluminum pan from the freezer section.  Marie Calender’s or other brand. Brush the pie dough with jam.                                          2. In a medium bowl, mix the fresh fruit, sugar, and cornstarch together. Pour the fruit mixture into the bottom of the jam smeared pie dough and                           gently fold  the edges of the dough onto the fruit mixture. The dough will cover 2″ of the outer portion of the pie…that is fine.                                                      3.  Next, place a grill friendly pan ‘inverted’ onto the grill to create an elevated surface. Place your filled pie tin on top of the elevated pan. Keep the grill lid              down and cook med/high (400 degrees) for 20-25 minutes or until the pie crust is golden brown. Remove pie and cool for 10 minutes then serve.

NOTE:  If using apples  rather than berries, slice and pre-cook the apples in the sugar, cornstarch, jam mixture in a saucepan on the stovetop for 10-15 minutes to soften the apples before adding to the pie shell prior to baking on the grill.
