Peach Pie

    Posted by  ·  August 23, 2011

    It is peach season!

    My sister-in-law, Jenny, makes a great peach pie. Her recipe is the best of both grandmothers. My grandmother’s secret was to sprinkle the top of the pie with cinnamon and sugar. Jenny’s grandmother had the perfect filling. You will want to take the time to make the crust yourself. Really it doesn’t take that much extra time and you get a wonderful flaky crust!

    Grandmother’s Pie Crust Recipe

    For 2 crust pie:

    2 C. all purpose flour
    ½ tsp. salt
    ¾ C. shortening
    1/3 C. ice cold water

    Sift flour and salt together.  Cut in shortening with a fork until crumbly.  Sprinkle water slowly into mixture.  Combine ingredients with hands; working quickly to form a ball.  Divide into 2 parts, trying not to handle it too much.  With floured hands, turn onto floured surface and roll into a circle, approximately 14” diameter.  With a knife, cut decorative slits in the top crust.  Fold crusts into ¼’s to easily transfer to pie pans.

    Grandmother’s Peach Pie

    9 peaches – peeled and thinly sliced
    1 ½ C. sugar
    8 dashes cinnamon
    5 dashes nutmeg
    1 dash salt
    1 tsp. vanilla
    3 Tbsp. flour

    Fold above ingredients together and pour into 9” pie shell.  Divide 2 Tbsp. butter into small pieces and place on top of filling.  Cut steam slits in top crust and place over filling.  Crimp edges.  Divide 2 Tbsp. butter into tiny bits (again) and place on outside of top crust, then sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.

    Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes; then turn oven down to 350 and bake for another 30 – 40 minutes until golden.

      We turned on the wireless connection on both and checked that they could
      connect to the internet and worked at a decent pace. There are many new applications available
      for you to download within the market. They only need to spend
      more affordable value for the technologies meanwhile they can get the exact same satisfaction as
      when they use i - Pad.

      I baked it last night. Great recipe. I just started my pie baking craze and this is only my fifth.
      I am new to pie baking, but I do know what I like. The only thing I would change is the amount of sugar.
      I would go with 1 to 1-1/4 sugar for the filling and sprinkle very, very little for the top.
      I bought very tart (not ripened) peaches and the sugar was very present.
      My change: 1+ cup of sugar for the filling, no sugar on top.

      Overall, if you need more storage capacity, then you should definitely get yourself
      a 6th Generation i - Pod Classic. four GHz which is why you
      want to invest in a jammer that can tamper this signal.

      There are a lot of options in mobile phones available on
      the market today.

      While waiting for help, the homeowner may call their insurance provider to inform them of the problem and inquire
      if it's part of the coverage. You can put a dehumidifier to keep the moisture out of the air so it will not affect your things and your home. Clean your gloves with lukewarm water and squeeze out the excess water.

      Amazing flavor. Had a little too much filling, cooked over. Had a cookie sheet under, so no problem. Next time I won't put it all in.
