Welcome to the Quilting Board!
We always use this receipe. Quick and easy.
Make crust for a double crust pie, Then peel about 5-6 peaches, depending on size, add 1 cup sugar, 2 Tablespoon flour, 1/4 teas. cinnamon, mix together, put in pie shell. Dot with butter, and sprinkle a little cinnamon on top. Put the top crust on. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
Whatever you do use, always add Almond flavoring. Almost 45 years ago my lovely Portuguese Mother in law taught me to always use Almond flavoring in any of the stone fruit cooking. (Stone fruits include Apricot and Peach and Plum, etc.) I've always done that and it intensifies the flavor of whatever it's added to.
Very interesting! I will have to remember that..Originally Posted by Ramona Byrd
We like this one:
Crust: 2 c. flour
1/2 c. liquid oil+1/4 c. water
6-7 cups sliced peaches; just a wild guess, but you can tell when you have enough.
3/4-1 c. sugar
Peaches to fill the pie pan
tapioca or flour to thicken
margarine or butter.
Mix the flour and salt. Add the oil and water mixture.
Stir well; lay out on a bread board or wax paper. Flour the surface well before putting dough on it; divide the dough in half. Roll out to fairly thin, have floured well. Either wrap around the rolling pin, or lift carefully to the pie pan. Fill the pie pan with the crust.
1. Have a bowl of lemon juice and water ready for the sliced peaches. This prevents them from turning dark.
2. Flour the bottom of the pie pan well to keep the juices from making the crust soggy.
3. Fill the pie pan with the sliced peaches, and discard the lemon juice/water mixture.
4. Coat the peaches well with: sugar, tapioca--about 2-3 T.; flour, about the same. Stir until the peaches are well coated.
5. Put dots of butter/margarine on top.
6. Add about 2 T. Cinnamon for extra flavor, and stir well.
7. Roll out the other half of the crust, and put on top. Carefully adjust it to the top so it looks yummy.
Bake about 15 min at 425. Reduce heat and bake about 30 min. at 375.
Let cool awhile before cutting.
***We love this pie, and you can make Apple the same.
2. Remove skin by dipping in boiling water. Slice peaches into the above.
Serve and enjoy!!
Could the corn starch be swapped out for Tapioca? I read that Tapioca creates a "clear" glaze - and I know that corn starch creates a hazy glaze??? Just wondering???

This pie leaves you wanting another piece--after "just one."
Thanks sounds really good and DH come home from flea market today with fresh peaches
