"He can have a rope ladder; we can tear up our sheets and make him a rope ladder easy enough. And we can send it to him in a pie; it's mostly done that way. And I've et worse pies."
-The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain
I wait for peach season like it is Christmas and I am a five year old child. Peaches are my favorite fruit, and I buy them by the case full. This week, amongst several other dishes, we are enjoying a beautiful old fashioned peach pie. And trust me: the pictures look tasty, but they still don't do it justice.
Simple, Delicious, Old Fashioned Peach Pie
10 Peaches, skinned and sliced
2/3 C Sugar
1/3 C Flour
1 tsp Almond extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg (if desired)
Toss all of this together and place in a pie shell. Dot with butter, top with crust and bake in a preheated oven at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Lower the temp to 350 for another 40 minutes, and take out and cool. Serve with almond flavored whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon.
I wish you MANY slices of peach pie in your future :)
