I used to hate pie. Cooked fruits were not my thing. Then, one day a few years ago, I was served a piece of homemade pie. It was life changing. The flakiness of the homemade crust and the perfectly sweet and not over cooked apples, changed my pie perception for ever. I am now a die hard HOMEMADE pie lover. The feelings have never quite change for the store bought pies however.
I am desperately trying to stay in summer mode, even though I have been over it for at least 6 weeks now. It took everything I had to not show up to the labor day party with a pumpkin pie. Figured I would get some snooty looks, and unhappy comments. So I opted for peach pie., but added a warm crust and humbling sauce. Irresistible.
This pie can be made anytime of year. Since having gone on our California Fruit Trail excursion a few months back, I still have an ungodly amount of frozen stone fruit. The frozen peaches worked beautifully. Before freezing the peaches, I dipped them in a large bowl of water and 1/2 of lemon juice. If you plan on using fresh peaches, I suggest you peel and cut then immediately throwing them into the bowl of water and lemon juice to avoid browning.
Don’t be deterred by the amount of steps in this recipe. It took me about 25 minutes (plus refrigeration and baking time) to put it together.
