Peach Pie

4 Dec

As I was thinking about what I wanted to make for Thanksgiving, I asked a very special (very cute) friend what he wanted. He immediately replied, peach pie. Huh. Peach pie? Yes, he said – peach pie (with an eye roll). So, I made a peach pie – in November. Even though I used canned peaches, the pie turned out to be pretty tasty. I recommend this recipe, and I will definitely try a fresh peach pie next summer.

Peach Pie
serves about 8/adapted from this recipe

Here’s what I used:

  • Crust for a 9 inch pie (top and bottom)
  • 2 thirty ounce cans of sliced peaches
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Here’s what I did:

  1. Drain peaches thoroughly and pour into large bowl.
  2. Add sugars, flour and spices and mix gently with a large spatula.
  3. Place the bottom crust in a pie plate and pour peach mixture on top.
  4. Cut the butter into several pieces and place on top of peaches.
  5. Add second crust and seal edges – don’t forget to vent the top crust.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for about 4 5 – 55 minutes.
