I love me some peach pie! What's more summery than a fresh peach pie with cream? Well, lots of things. Ice tea, swimming, picnics, sunshine...But if you've been craving peach pie as much as I have, this one's for you.
Peaches and Cream Pie
-4 or 5 fresh peaches
-1/4 cup flour
-1tsp fresh lemon zest
-1/4 cup sugar
Slice your peaches and remove the skins and pits. Prepare your bottom crust in a regular 9inch pie pan. Stir in your flour, a pinch of salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon, ginger, and sugar. Mix well and pour into your crust, smoothing out the top so that it is flat. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-45 minutes until crust is browned and filling bubbles. Cool pie on counter and then in fridge.
Whip 1/2 pint of cream with a 1tbs of sugar and top the pie (now cold!) with it. Chill for a few minutes before serving.
I want more already!
If you want to be extra thrifty you can use the skins and pits to make peach ice tea, but that's a recipe for another day.
Hope your summer is sweet!
