Someone who wanted a peach pie left this not so subtle hint for me in the kitchen. Guess I need to make a pie. I had a great recipe that I tweaked a little bit by adding some brown sugar and more spice. This recipe makes a great pie that holds it shape like a pie should. It’s not runny like the other peach pies I’ve made. Your family and friends will be amazed at what a great pie baker you are!
I used the store bought crust. What could be easier and you know it tastes good!
Make a crumb mixture by mixing together 1/4 cup flour, 2 Tablespoons quick cooking oats (oatmeal), 2 Tablespoons brown sugar, 1 cup sugar, 1 1/2 Tablespoon cinnamon, a teaspoon almond extract and 1/4 cup room temperature butter. You can adjust sugars to your liking, I like the flavor of brown sugar in a peach pie…..well in anything.
Put the bottom crust in your pie pan, then a layer of sliced fresh peaches, then a sprinkling of crumb mixture. Continue layering and end with crumb mixture. I used 7 peaches, some of them were really large.
Put on the top crust and crimp the edges. I’m not good at crimping, my pies usually look very rustic.
I brush on an egg wash which will make the crust look pretty. It’s a beaten egg mixed with a little water.
The crust looks shiny from the egg wash and was so delicious!
Bake at 350 for up to 1-1 1/2 hour. Start checking your pie at about 45 minutes so the crust doesn’t get too brown. You may need to cover the edges with foil.
So good! Even better with vanilla ice cream! Look at that crust, I don’t think I’ll ever make my own crust again.
What’s your favorite way to use fresh peaches?
Enjoy those peaches while they’re in season because fresh is so much better than canned. Except home canned. If you can your own peaches, I bow to you!
I found a peach pie recipe that uses sour cream and pecans and I think I might try it next. Bill loves sweets and we always share with our neighbors so I don’t eat it all, because I might just do that!
Tomorrow Friday Feature will be back and next week a giveaway is coming up!
