Peach Pie - Recipe



We had a few peaches left in the house and well, they were just calling to be made into a pie.
I had never made one before so I looked in some of my recipe books but nothing seemed to grab my attention. I found this recipe over at Taste of Home and it looked like a winner so I gave it a try.
I'm not very good at making a lattice pie crust but figured I could give it a whirl. As you can see from the picture it was *cough*acceptable*cough* This is one skill that I shall have to keep working on. My dough was way too soft and kept breaking as I was pulling it up to place on the pie. grr! Not to mention I have no clue as to what I did with my pie dishes. (You see I packed quite a few things up early last year because we were thinking about moving.) I ripped through the boxes (yes, they are still packed) and I had no luck in finding them. So, in the end I decided to use my tart pan, a bit bigger but it did the job. (A mental note was made to make sure I find or buy a new pie pan before apple pie season rolls around.)

The pie was quite easy to make and had a wonderful flavor. I am not a big pie fan but I have to say that this one was quite enjoyable. Great with a touch of vanilla ice cream or whipped topping when served.
