I should have picked up more...one crate of fresh peaches, especially the first one of the season, is NEVER enough! I had to hide half the crate in a safe, unidentified hiding spot in order to have enough to make this pie today! Over the years my family has grudgingly gotten used to finding food marked "DO NOT TOUCH!", knowing that it is usually a critical ingredient for something delicious that they will be encouraged to eat and make comment on for my website.
And my grandson has started standing up in his chair and taking "pictures" of his meals before he eats them...gotta love it! Cracks me up every time!
But Aaaaahhhhhhh...fresh, warm, sweet and summery peach pie. Is there anything like it?
Once you've made a homemade fresh peach pie, you will never, ever consider using a prepared pie filling. There is no way to compare the freshness, texture or natural sweetness that you get from fresh ripe peaches.
Of course, that is for the fresh peach pies that we make AFTER the first one...which is usually gobbled up warm after an hour or two of swatting hands away from the pie plate!
Hope that you enjoy our family favorite recipe as much as we do!
