pretty peach pie

Do you ever find a recipe you can't wait to try, make a list of the ingredients, go buy them, and then come home to find you have no idea where you put the recipe? Well, that happened to me with this peach pie. I know I wrote down the ingredients from a recipe I saw somewhere, but I have no idea where. I mean why else would I buy exactly nine peaches? Anyway, I looked up a few more recipes for peach pie on the web and just combined a few, and here is what I came up with...

For this pie you will need:
9 medium peaches
1/2 cup of flour
1 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp. of cinnamon
1/4 tsp. of nutmeg
2 tblsp. of butter
1 beaten egg
2 ready made pie crusts

Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees. Peel the peaches and slice them. Mix the peaches with the flour, sugar and spices. Grease a glass pie pan. Line it with a pie crust. Add in the peach mixture. Dot it with butter. To make it a bit prettier than normal, on a working mat dusted with a bit of flour, roll out the second pie crust. Use a cookie cutter to cut out circles of dough. Overlap the dough circles on top of the peach mixture. (This tip I know came from Bon Appetit.) Brush the crust with a beaten egg. Cook for 45 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Let the pie cool for at least ten minutes before serving.

This is a delicious treat this time of year with all of the ripe peaches at the farmers' markets. Not only are they incredibly sweet they are also a good source of vitamin C (because no one wants a cold in the summer). So enjoy! I know the carnivore and I did. Just don't lose the recipe...


  1. Oooh that IS pretty! And delish.

  2. The peach pie looks beautiful! I made the blue monkey muffins you had and posted a blog entry. They were delicious.

  3. I was looking forward to making peach pie this summer because we have a peach tree in the backyard... unfortunately, my husband kept giving the peaches away so we didn't have enough! I was so bummed. Your peach pie looks great - especially if you had it with a nice heap of vanilla ice cream!

  4. the carnivore did enjoy his with vanilla ice cream. unfortunately he ate most of that before i could have any!

  5. I must agree that is one pretty peach pie! LOoks lovey!
