Pie Filling

  • 9 peaches peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ Cups sugar
  • 8 dashes cinnamon
  • 5 dashes nutmeg
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 Tbsp flour


  • 2 Cups all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ Cups shortening
  • 1/3 Cups ice cold water


  • 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.


  • 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 inch diameter. With a knife, cut decorative slits in the top crust. Fold crusts into ¼’s to easily transfer to pie pans.
