Fresh peaches = peach pie.
It’s peach time! There are many choices of what to do with peaches. For starters, there’s nothing like a fresh peach – peeling and all! Sliced peaches with cookies or cake are also great. Peach cobbler is another possibility.
If, however, you’d like to make a pie with fresh peaches, here is my sister’s recipe for homemade peach pie. Loretta lives in Nebraska and has been selling food at the Farmer’s Market in Lincoln for 30 years.
I asked my sisters for a recipe for peach pie, and she sent this one to me. We made the pie and loved it. Any pie is best with a homemade crust. You can make this a two-crust pie or you can use a crumb topping for the top.
Here is the recipe.
- 4 cups sliced peaches
- ¾ cup sugar
- 3½ Tablespoons flour
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- ¼ cup water
- Peel and slice peaches
- Mix sugar and flour together
- Place sliced peaches in crust
- Add flour mixture alternately with peaches (3-4 layers total)
- Dot with butter
- Add water
- Place crust on top
- Sprinkle sugar on top of crust (optional)
- Bake at 350 for one hour or until done
