Fresh Peach Pie

I bought a basket of nice Ontario Peaches but they just weren’t being eaten fast enough so I made a pie with the rest of them.  Is there anything better than a freshly made, homemade pie?

I already had some pastry made and in the freezer so I was able to skip that step and go right to the filling, but if you need to make pastry… I always, always, always use Tenderflake and follow the directions on the package to the letter and I have always had a nice flaky, delicious, easy to work with pastry!

I peeled and sliced the peaches.  Good timing too, some of them were starting to get a bit soft!

I added the flour, cornstarch, cinnamon, allspice, salt, sugar, melted butter and vanilla to the peaches.

And mixed until it was well blended.

Now it was pastry time!  I rolled out my first circle of pastry, laid it in my pie plate, trimmed it and then poked fork holes in the bottom.

I poured the peach pie filling in it and set it aside until I was ready with the top.

This time I rolled out a sort of rectangle and then using my pizza cutter, cut strips about 1″ wide.

I wove my strips right on the surface.

And then carefully transferred it to the pie.

I trimmed the edges again.

Then using a fork, I pressed the edges together all the way around.

I brushed the top of the pie with a beaten egg and then sprinkled it with granulated sugar.

And baked it at 400 degrees for 45 minutes, until it was golden brown.
