Perfect summer desert
« on: August 28, 2007, 01:41:47 AM »
Peach pie is the absolute best summer dessert. Peaches are just ripe here and are sooooo good.  ::angel:: Trust me, this pie won't be sitting around in your kitchen for long.

Michigan Peach Pie

7 cups thinly sliced peeled peaches (or 3 15 oz cans, drained)
¾ cup sugar
3 Tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Easy Crust
2 ¼ Cups All Purpose Flour
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup sugar (more or less to taste)
½ cup oil
1/3 cup cold milk

Peel and slice peaches. In a large bowl combine peaches, sugar, tapioca, almond extract, lemon juice, and salt. Let stand for 10 min. while making the crust.  Mix all the dry ingredients of the crust in mixing bowl. Add milk and oil at same time. Stir until moistened. Roll out half of dough and place in pie plate. Trim edges. Spoon the peach filling into the pie, and then roll out second half of dough and place over top. Crimp the edges, and cut small vents in the top crust. Use any left over dough for decorating the pie. Brush the top with milk or water, and sprinkle it lightly with sugar. Bake at 375 for about 45 min. serve with your favorite ice cream.

Peach Pie coming right up G-man! ;) But ya'll might just have to come to MI ~ then again, I don't think we get forest fires any where near where I live. Recently it's been Thunderstorms producing 4-6 inches of rain at a time, flooding, and power outages here.

Gibbo! I must have missed this post! I would love to visit down under! It's on my top 10 places to visit. This might sound cheesy :D , but "The Man from Snowy River" was one of my favorite movies growing up and ever since I would love to go visit. ::wave::

G-Man~Guess What! I just flew over Cadillac a couple of days ago on my way up to Mackinac Island! I'll post some pics of the trip as soon as I find my camera cable!
