Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust round homemade or store bought is fine
  • 2 1/4 pounds persimmons peeled and cut into 1/2 inch chunks (the fruit should be ripe but not too soft)
  • 1/2 pound apples your favorite kind - I used Lady apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2 inch chunks
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature

Crumb topping:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats regular oatmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Drape the pie crust over a 9 inch pie pan, gently pressing it to form to the pan. Trim any excess dough and flute the edges in your desired pattern.
  • In a large bowl, toss the persimmons, apples, sugar, flour and cinnamon. Place the fruit filling into the pie pan. Dot with pieces of the softened butter.
  • Make topping by combining the flour, sugar and butter using your fingers, a pastry cutter or a food processor, mixing until it looks like course crumbs. Add oats and cinnamon and mix a little more. Spread topping evenly over fruit and pat down gently with your fingertips.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then lower the heat to 350°F. Continue baking for another 30-40 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown, and the filling is bubbling within. Remove from the oven and let it cool before slicing.
