Peach Pie

I had to go to town today to get my prescriptions filled and when I got home I just couldn't stand the thought of peeling a million peaches for jam. Something about 7 cups of sugar for jam which we really don't eat, just didn't motivate me today. Maybe I will do some tomorrow but I still have all those peaches and had to make a small dent in them anyway so I made a peach pie....well, a peach/cherry pie because I still have all those dried cherries my sister-in-law gave me (as a matter a fact, they gave me another quart bag after the first ones) and they need to be used too.
I didn't use a recipe. Nothing wrong with using a recipe but after years of cooking, I think I can put together a simple pie without one. It's a lost art, I know but really pies are pretty easy. I peeled, and peeled, and peeled my peaches until I had a pie tin full, then I put them in a bowl, added a cup of sugar, a handful or so of the dried cherries, some cinnamon, a little less nutmeg, and a little flour. Readied the bottom crust and put it in the pan, poking holes in it here and there, put in the peaches/cherries, dabbed some butter on top and then put the top crust on.



I cooked it for 40 minutes and the crust was not real brown but since I tend to get it too brown usually, I thought this was good enough and took it out. Will let you know how good it is tonight after dinner (in the comments) but I imagine this is going to be pretty tasty.

  1. They pie was a bit runny, a little more flour might have helped but it tasted absolutely wonderful. The peaches had such a nice light taste not at all strong like the ones you get from the store.

  2. I like pies that are "Well done" - i.e. very brown. And the same with bread. I'm glad the peaches tasted good. Maybe they made all the effort of peeling worthwhile?

    1. It was definitely worth it but I am going to give some peaches away as I have to go out of town Sunday and I don't want them sitting here going to waste.

  3. Hi Becky, it looks pretty good to me. The crust is just a vessel, it's what's inside that matters to me. Sounds yuuuuumy!
