Cooking Thursday

It's time for Cooking Thursday again. For more recipes, visit Sandra at Diary of a SAHM.
My recipe for today is for Peach Pie. I think it's one of the easiest pies I make and it always turns out good.
I also freeze this pie filling. Make it as directed and put it in a freezer bag. When you are ready to make the pie, all you need is the crust. I thaw the filling, add about 2 tablespoons of flour right into the freezer bag, seal it and mix it in. Then pour it into the crust and finish as directed on recipe. It turns out great!




Peach Pie


Pastry for 9 inch, 2 crust pie
5 cups sliced fresh peaches
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons sugar

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare pastry, and place one crust into 9 inch pie plate.
Mix peaches and lemon juice.
Mix 1 cup sugar, flour and cinnamon; stir peaches into mix.
Turn into pastry lined pie plate. Cover with top crust, and place slits in crust.
Seal crusts and flute edges.
Brush water over top crust and sprinkle 2 tablespoons sugar over top.
Cover edge of pie with 2 inch aluminum foil to prevent excess browning.
Bake for 30 minutes, remove foil and bake for 15 more minutes or until crust is brown.

Hi Mari Sweetie...
Boy does this ever look GREAT? Oh my gosh, you are a woman after my own heart. Peach pie is my favorite. Now I am wondering would this make a cobbler as well? A cobbler sure has been calling me of late.

Can't wait to try this one. YUMMY for sure. Your crust is just beautiful sweetie. Just beautiful.

Country hugs sweetie, Sherry

That looks great especially with some ice cream on the top.

Patti said...

YUM! And what a great idea to make and freeze it - never thought of doing that.

Stopped in by way of Mike Golch's place. Pie looks good, If I bring Coffee or tea can we share? Hehe. It's getting time for apple pie in this house. I don't make it often as I used to as the weight seems to stay on the hips longer the older I get. But then again, it never hurts to throw caution to the wind once in a while does it? Hugs. Tammy

Good grief! Talk about heaven on a plate. Thanks for sharing that one, Mari! Duly copied ... the peaches are still good in SC.

Nancy said...

Brooke said...

You know that this is absolutely the most perfect recipe for me right now. Peaches are huge at some of the cider mills around here, especially the ones right by my town. They actually have a peach festival, complete with a queen or whatever she's called. I think I might even have enough from my peck or half bushel or whatever it was I bought the last time to make this. Of course I'll have to go buy more then since you said it freezes.

Cherdecor said...

Oh! This is simply to die for; I just know it! I must make this!
I now have some gluten free flour.

Debbie said...

I so love to bake pies and peach is one of my all time favorites. This would looks amazing.

Connie said...

That pie looks so inviting. You must be some cook/baker. Its been a long time since I baked a pie. I should get at it again.

Kayren, Pink Daisy Girl said...

Okay, I already made my pie, although it doesn't look nearly as pretty as yours. Not even close! I posted the recipe and pictures over on my blog. Of course I linked back to you too. I can't tell you how much I'm going to enjoy this recipe, especially this time of year EVERY year.

Rebecca said...

I REALLY like the tip of freezing the filling! I've never heard of it before but will certainly try it!

Kim said...

This is, hands down, my hubby's favorite pie. He just sprayed our peach tree for the first time this season and will do it twice more in hopes that the crop this year won't be as bug-infested as the past two. We'll have to wait about 4 months but I'll definitely try your recipe when the peaches are in!

I don't know what happened but I really messed up this recipe tonight. The pie looked really good when I took it from the oven. When we cut it, it was so full of juice, we had to take it to the sink and pour it out. Consequently the bottom crust did not get done. I think the peaches were really juicy. I probably had too big a peaches. The flour did not thicken so well. Oh well.....Alan poured milk over it and ate his piece that way.
