One of my favorite desserts is a fruit purse:

1 frozen pie crust in the disposable pan

fruit of your choice



Defrost the pie crust at room temperature and preheat the oven to 350.

Take really good, ripe fruit–I’ve done it with peaches, mangoes, apples, anything with a strong flavor. Peel and cube into small chunks, then toss with a spoon or two of sugar (cinnamon too if apples).  Pile into the center of the pie crust, dot with little bits of butter, and fold the sides in. The center will be exposed, that’s fine.  Bake until golden brown.  Eat warm with ice cream or whipped cream, cooled on its own.  SO GOOD!

This is my favorite and it always a hit. The texture of the whipping cream and sweet and condensed milk is amazing.


  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package devil’s food cake mix
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 cups whipping cream, whipped
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 2 kiwifruit, peeled and chopped



  1. Prepare cake batter according to package directions; pour into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  2. Crumble enough cake to measure 8 cups; set aside. (Save remaining cake for another use.)
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine milk and water until smooth. Add pudding mix; beat on low speed for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Fold in the whipped cream.
  4. To assemble, spread 2-1/2 cups pudding mixture in a 4-qt. glass bowl. Top with half of the crumbled cake; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon orange juice. Arrange half of the berries and kiwi over cake. Repeat pudding and cake layers; sprinkle with remaining orange juice. Top with remaining pudding mixture. Spoon remaining fruit around edge of bowl. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
