Fresh Peach Pie

This is a Southern Living recipe and it's delicious. Hope you enjoy!


5 1/2 cups peeled, sliced fresh peaches (3 1/2 lbs)
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pastry for double crust 9 inch pie (refrigerated pie crust works fine too)

Combine first 4 ingredients in a saucepan; set aside until syrup forms. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat to low, and cook 10 minutes or until peaches are tender, stirring often. Remove from heat; add butter and vanilla, blending well.

Place one pastry in pie plate; trim off excess pastry along edges of pieplate. Spoon filling into pastry shell. Cut remaining pastry into 1/2 inch strips. Arrange strips in lattice design over peaches. Trim strips even with edges; fold edges under, and crimp.

Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 350 degrees, and bake 25 to 30 more minutes or until crust is browned. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!

This looks heavenly. I DON'T think it is low-fat. LOL.

Your family is blessed to have a mom who is such a wonderful homemaker.

And by the way, I love the new layout on your blog.

You can Substitue 1 1/2 (16 oz) packages frozen unsweetened sliced peaches..
But I still like FRESH!

Thanks for stopping by earlier.
That pie looks delish.
I'll have to give it a try sometime.

We currently live in the Sandhills area of NC and are moving to the Upstate of SC. Can't wait.

Have a great week.

That peach pie looks yummy and I am in need of a run to the grocery store. I am loving those thrifty finds. Maybe I will come back with something this AM after a visit to the thrift store. I have a lot of catching up to do after the weekend. Have a great week. Jackie
