Fresh Peach Pie

I CANNOT believe it's been over 3 weeks since I've posted! What I thought was a little bit of slacking off turned into a huge land slide. I hope you all have been enjoying your summer in the mean time.

Here is a little bit of summer for you today: fresh peach pie. This is one of those desserts that is so easy to make, and so full of summer goodness, I don't know why I don't make it more often.

You don't even need a recipe, just a few storebought items:
  • Frozen pie crust (I prefer Marie Callender's or Mrs. Smith's)
  • 5-6 large fresh peaches
  • 1 jar or container of peach pie glaze (found in produce section)
  • 1 lemon, juiced (this will keep the peaches from browning)
  • Sugar

Sprinkle one pie crust with sugar and bake according to package directions. Freeze remaining pie crust for a later use. Meanwhile, rinse and slice peaches. Toss in a large bowl with lemon juice. Then toss again with pie glaze. Refrigerate filling while pie crust bakes. Let pie crust cool completely before filling. Store pie in fridge covered in plastic wrap.

Strawberry Pie: Peaches and pie glaze can easily be substituted for strawberry

My mother in law makes a pie like this with jello as the filling that holds it all together. But ya know, it's even better if you make your own crust...surprisingly, it doesn't take as long as you'd suspect.

Crysti is right, homemade crust is better (if you can get it right, i've made my fair share of "non-flaky" crusts). But what can I say, pie crust is one of those things I just don't enjoy making. Never have. So I take the easy route =)
