Peach Pie

I’m making a peach pie today. I stink at assembling the crusts. They fall apart and tend to litter the counter, the floor and every surface OTHER than the pie plate. I substituted buttermilk for the water and had better luck with it this time! No, that’s not an official recipe. I added *some* buttermilk and then *some* more. For the top crust I added another *some* amount. For all I know the thing will be hard and chewy as a cardboard box. But generally the crusts I make taste good. They just look funny. I tell everyone that I do a lattice work crust and the lattice work crumbled under its own weight. 🙂

Peaches are very nutritious. Lots of vitamin A, C and E. They also have lutein, which is great for your eyes. If you have dry eye or macular degeneration in your family, eating peaches may help!

  1. Have you tried the cream cheese crust yet? I think that would be absolutely yummy with peach pie.

  2. Not yet! This was my “back to butter because margarine was worse” attempt. I already knew water gave me trouble, so I sub’d in buttermilk. It’s pretty good. Not quite light/fluffy, but not cardboard either. I was so thrilled to not have to spend half an hour cleaning up the kitchen counters and floors…

  3. I think we are related! I have never gotten a crust to the pie plate! I buy the crusts and for some reason it works. I have tried ALL of the tricks and am better at buying the silly things. I have found out the pies already made from Costco are wonderful!

  4. This isn’t the first time we’ve been related! 🙂 I’ll just keep fooling with pie crusts. Maybe I’ll get it right someday.

  5. Who cares what it looks like? Just don’t forget to put some on my plate. 🙂

  6. Come on over! When the crust is particularly odd looking, I just add an extra scoop of ice cream!
