It’s a second version of the Japanese flavor pie. I have added yamamomo a season fruit.

So this is the beast. The “Chinese strawberries”. They grow on trees, particularly in Shikoku islands. In Japanese, they are called 山桃 yamamomo (mountain peaches). Even though it’s a very ancient Japanese fruit, it’s not so common on markets these days. I’m glad when I can get some.

Then place a few yamamomo (the greenest, not so good to eat raw) and the filling and a little cane sugar on each.Bake.

Like the basic pie, it’s delicious served chilled.
