Old-Fashioned Peach Pie

Old-Fashioned Peach Pie

Does homemade pie crust sound intimidating? It was for me when I wanted to make my first pie and it was a disaster!!
My mother and grandmother were both good pie makers. I remember when my mother was baking a pie she always had extra crust left over and she let me roll it out and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on and bake in the oven. I still do that today.
I love this time of year. It will finally start to cool down and we have had a very hot summer! Peaches are starting to come on and I have so many yummy recipes to share like this delicious Peach Pie that our family loves.
Just the smell alone makes my mouth water! If you haven’t tried fresh peach pie, you are missing out. Every bite is truly a taste of summer.
I remember when I was cooking we had to make pies for 300 people. WOW that was an adventure. We made everything from scratch and they turned out good! We had many compliments on how flaky the crust was and how delicious these pies were. My grandmother would have been so proud!
Impress your friends and family this year and make homemade pies and pie crust, completely from scratch!
This is such a simple, scrumptious pie recipe and it makes the Best Peach Pie you will ever taste!
Pie Crust 
Brown sugar
All Purpose Flour 
Lemon juice…..Drain your peaches well after you mix them with lemon juice and vanilla. This will help make your pie not soggy.
Cinnamon and Nutmeg
Lemon juice
Freestone Peaches…these are the best peaches to use for cooking and baking. To make a perfect peach pie make sure your peaches are ripe and juicy.
Have you ever wondered why you dot any fruit pie with butter? I always heard growing up it was to prevent the pie filling from boiling over. I think anytime you do this it makes it taste even better. It adds a richness to the fruit pie.
Another tip I have learned is to sprinkle your peach pie with cinnamon sugar, on the top before baking. We have always made our own and let me share a quick recipe….
(Put 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon in a bowl and mix together. Then get a cute bottle and pour the mixture into it.)
When I get ready to freeze these peach pies I make them in pie pans, cover them with saran wrap and foil and place them in an airtight container for up to 4 months.
Go grab your ingredients, and let's get baking!
