  1. Prepare a pie crust and refrigerate it.
  2. Prepare the fruits: peel, core, and slice them. They will collapse during baking so don’t slice them too small.

  4.  Once the butter has melted, increase heat until the fruit juice gets bubbly. Then add: cinnamon stick, ground cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Once the sugar has melted and everything is mixed in well, reduce heat, and simmer for at least 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  8. Top with whipped cream or frozen yogurt, or enjoy just the way they are
