I don't know what's showing up in your local produce stands, but around here, Red Haven peaches are just being picked. Bob and I both love peaches, but Bob likes his peaches best in a pie!
Here's a recipe I've made for years. It's so easy to put together and is very good.
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.
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!
