Today I was shopping at my local grocery store, where they had a sale on Organic Yellow Peaches. First thing I thought to make was, a classic Peach Pie.
I love when recipes are plain and simple, but not boring, so I came up with this one, and specifically left out any spices. I had thought about adding cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger, but I wanted the fruit flavor to stand on its own. This can be risky, if the fruit isn’t at its peak. Add a small scoop of vanilla ice cream and you have a great summertime treat!
6 large or 8 medium to small Peaches (or other stone fruit), pitted and sliced
1 Cup Sugar (approx.)
2 T. Cornstarch
1 Pie Shell (you can make your own, or allow Pillsbury to create one for you!)
Preheat oven to 375°F.
I soak them in a little lemon juice and water mixture so they won’t brown. (Make sure drain and dry off the peaches)
Mix together the sugar and cornstarch.
