Ever gone peach picking? I hadn't, but love peaches! We decided to spend yesterday on a peach quest. First we went peach picking at a farm...
We had a great time trying to figure out how to tell which ones we should pick. We didn't want to pick them too ripe or rock hard.
When we were done we felt pretty accomplished. Now off to find something to do with our peaches. You can't have peaches without making peach pie! We found a flyer at the farm with a recipe that we tweaked a little to make it our own. Here's the recipe we used:
about 9-10 peaches
3/4 c sugar
cinnamon (no specific amount)
nutmeg (no specific amount)
2Tbsp (aprox) butter cut up
ready made pie crust (9 in. deep dish)
ready made pie crust to put over the top
sugar and cinnamon mixture to sprinkle over the top
Mix the first 6 ingredients together, pour mixture into the pie shell, stick the other 9 in. crust over the top and pinch pie crusts together to create somewhat of a seal. Sprinkle top of crust with cinnamon and sugar mixture then bake at 400 degrees for about 45, or until the top crust is golden.
