G helped me make a peach pie! and it was a very yummy peach pie! At least my husband said it was the best he's ever had, and that I'm more than welcome to make the pie whenever I feel like it. The funny thing is, I don't really feel like I baked a pie...I used a store bought crust (Aldi's, which was very good) AND frozen peaches. But it was delicious and that is what counts. It also could be that I added the whole half a cup of sugar into the filling instead of the divided amount (1/4 cup in the filling & 1/4 cup sprinkled on top of the crust). It's still 1/2 cup of sugar in the end...mine was just all inside.
It really was a great pie. Not too runny and definitely something to make again (when I can eat butter).
Here's the recipe if you feel up to baking a tasty pie.
Grandma’s Peach Pie
**recipe from Homesick Texan
For the crust:
2 cups of flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup milk
For the filling
1 quart (4 cups) of peeled and sliced peaches, uncooked (if using frozen, let thaw a bit)
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
5 tablespoons of butter, sliced
1 tablespoon of flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour and salt. Mix oil and milk. Pour oil and milk into flour and salt and stir until combined into a dough. Can add more milk if dry.
Separate into two balls. Roll out one ball between two sheets of wax paper, and line a pie pan with crust. Roll out other ball and set aside.
Add to the crust-lined pie pan the peaches. Sprinkle on top 1/4 cup of sugar, cinnamon and flour. Add slices of butter.
Take other rolled-out crust, and lay it on top of the pie, crimping and sealing the edges. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of sugar on top of pie, and poke holes in top crust with a fork.
Bake in oven for about an hour, or until crust is golden and pie is bubbling.
