Berry Simple Fruit Pie

Fresh berries will be here before we know it, so here is a quick and maybe the easiest pie that you will ever make. It is so refreshing.
Enjoy! Debbie

3/4 cup(s) SUGAR
2 tablespoon(s) CORNSTARCH

YUM. Can this be done with frozen fruit? I'm picturing peach because I can't find a good peach pie to save my life.

You will be the first to know. At this rate either tonight or tomorrow (probably tomorrow) it's going to be an all Blue Plate dinner. Cheesey Potatoes, Cherry topped Pork Chops, and pie. Any suggestions for another side?

I am honored. I say this recipe for a side because this is what I am fixing for a side vegetable tonight.

The cranberries add such a great flavor and color to these green beans, great for any meal. I'm sure this would be good with fresh green beans or canned and served with some slivered almonds.
Enjoy! Debbie

FESTIVE GREEN BEANS



1 bag(s) (16 ounces) FROZEN FRENCH STYLE GREEN BEANS; Thawed.
3 tablespoon(s) BUTTER
1 cup(s) CRANBERRIES; Dried, Or To Taste.
1 tablespoon(s) GARLIC; Minced.
1 teaspoon(s) MARJORAM
SALT; To Taste.
BLACK PEPPER; To Taste.
_____

Melt butter along with the garlic in a skillet.
Add marjoram, green beans and cranberries.
Stir-fry beans until heated through about 5 minutes.
Season beans with salt and pepper to taste.

Thanks. That will be nice because the red of the cranberries can tie in with the red in the cherry. DD is going to be at her track meet well past 7 tonight so I think we'll do this spread tomorrow. I love French Style green beans, they are my favorite.

You're such a help. Thank you.
