Peach Pie~

I made a peach pie with the peaches from my very own trees :-) I didn't get a lot of peaches--- I don't know why considering my trees are huge. Okokok.... I did let a lot ripen on the tree and fall off-- thats probably why I didn't get that many lol. Here is a wonderful recipe that you MUST TRY! It is another one of those tweaked recipes of mine lol

Brown Sugar Peach Pie~
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbs. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 4-5 cups of peaches
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 store bought pie shells

Add the vanilla to the 4 to 5 cups of peaches...stir well. In another bowl mix all the dry ingredients together. Pour the dry ingredients over the peaches, stir until its all coated. Using a fork make vent holes in the bottom shell....pour in the peach mixture. I always hold back about 1/2 of the juice created from the sugar mixture as I don't like "soupy-pies" Now... take the second pie shell crust out of the pan and onto a piece of wax paper to make a top for the pie. Using water to fix any cracks~ While the pie shell is on the wax paper I used a cookie cutter to create the vents for the top of the pie-- Once you flip the pie shell ontop of the pie--just lift the corner of each heart to offset it a little for a nice vent opening. Super cute!

Oh my gosh.... tastes so good too! The great thing about this pie is that everyone will want big pieces-- so then you won't have left overs that you'll end up eating lol
