Summer Solstice Pie

With the Solstice coming up on the 21 I thought you might like to make this cool desert. I hope you enjoy it.
I found the recipe last year at Jaspenelle's blog.

Summer Solstice Pie

You’ll need:
A pie shell
Ingredients for the nectarine layer:
3 cups of nectarines or peaches (peeled and sliced)
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp butter or margarine

Ingredients for the nectarine layer
4 cups of blackberries or blueberries (I use 2 cups of each)
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp cornstarch
A dash of cinnamon
1 Tbsp butter or margarine

1. Bake pie crust at 350ºF for about 15 to minutes. Let cool on rack.
2. Mash the peaches with sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch and pour into a saucepan. Cook on medium for 5 minutes until it thickens.
3. Mash 2 cups of the berries with the sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Cook in saucepan over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Add in the butter with the rest of the whole berries and stir. Cool and pour it over top of the peach layer.
4. Chill and serve.
