Fresh Peach Pie

Fresh Peach Pie

 

Peaches.  Pie.  And fall.  Three of my favorite things.

Well, it isn’t fall quite yet but all year long I look forward to ripe, local peaches in August, September, and October.  I look forward to apples and pumpkins, too, but I’ll save those for another post.

Yesterday I stopped at my favorite produce stand to pick up some milk and a few other things and I was so excited when I saw that they had local peaches.  So I grabbed a bag and filled it up.  Within an hour I was snacking on one and making a peach pie.  Believe me, I was in heaven.  Those peaches were ripe, firm, a little bit tart, and oh-so-sweet.

The peach pie recipe I used is the only one I’ve ever used.  It’s from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that my grandmother gave to me as a bridal shower gift ~ it’s one of those tried-and-true recipes that is so good that I haven’t ever looked for a better one.  I’ll share it with you today.

My next post will cover making a super easy, practically fail-proof, delicious, flaky pie crust ~ so check back next week.

Fresh Peach Pie

It took some will-power for us to wait for it to cool and then photograph it before cutting into it!

Ingredients

  • Pastry for a 9-inch lattice-top pie or my [Delicious Flaky Pie Crust|http://www.abrightandbeautifullife.com/delicious-flaky-pie-crust/|)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut up into small pieces {about the size of dime or so}
  • 5 cups sliced fresh peaches {about 5 average sized peaches)

Directions

  1. Slice the peaches into a mixing bowl and set aside.
  2. Combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Add to the peaches and mix to coat the peaches.
  3. Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry.
  4. Fill with the peach mixture.
  5. Dot with butter. {See photo below}
  6. Arrange lattice crust over the filling; seal or crimp edges. {See photo below}
  7. Bake at 400 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Tent with foil the last 10 minutes if the crust is browning too much.
  8. Serve warm or cold with whipped cream or ice cream.

Fresh Peach Pie

Take your cut strips of pastry {1/2-3/4 inches wide} and lay {in about 1 inch intervals} and weave them until the pie top is covered.

Fresh Peach Pie

I almost always forget to dot my pies with butter before adding the top crust.  With a lattice-top it’s easy to correct that missed step.  Just place the dots of butter on the pie between the lattice and slightly press them down in the pie filling.
To finish off my pie edge I just fold the lattice edges under the bottom crust and leave it that way because that’s the look I like.  You can crimp yours or roll it or finish off your edge any way you like.

It tasted as good as it looks and we’re already looking forward to another slice tomorrow.

      I think lattice always makes a pie look a little bit extra special and it’s so easy to do. Thanks for the compliment on something that is to easy!
