Drunken Summer Fruit Pie

The perfect addition to any summer picnic or party!


  • For the filling:
  • ¼ C butter
  • 1 C powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp rum
  • 4-5 C fresh fruit (we like mixing blueberries, strawberries and blackberries, but you can’t go wrong!)
  • For the glaze:
  • 1 C water
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • ½ of a 3 ounce package of Jell-O mix (strawberry works best with most flavor combos)
  • Additional:
  • 1 pre-made graham cracker piecrust
  • Cool Whip
  • 1 tsp rum


  1. Slice fruit.
  2. Mix butter, 1 tsp rum, powdered sugar and fruit in a bowl, then add to crust and set aside.
  3. For the glaze, bring water to a boil.
  4. Add cornstarch and stir until thickened.
  5. Add Jell-O. Once Jell-O is incorporated, remove from heat and let cool (45 minutes).
  6. Pour glaze over fruit and chill in the fridge for one hour.
  7. While pie is chilling, mix Cool Whip (however much or little you like) with remaining 1 tsp rum. (This can be altered, depending on how “drunken” you take your pie.)
  8. Once cooled, remove pie from fridge, spread Cool Whip on top and serve!
