Some fresh fruit pies and pastries will always be our favorites. However, the fruit needed for our beloved pies and pastries may not be always in season. In that case, there is the option of using your favorite frozen fruit which tastes fuller than canned fruit. However, I recommend using seasonal fruit as often as possible for your pies and pastries. There is nothing like fresh fruit. Instead of peach, an apple pie with a dash of cardamom would be a nice substitute on a cold day with a warm cup of tea. Being inventive with fruit that may not be your favorite helps to bring you a new dessert and entice your palate! The Pastry Cupboard has a selection of pies and pastries to satisfy your cravings.
