Sadie’s “Simply Sweet” Peach Pie

We really like this recipe because the peaches are not saturated in sugar.  Admittedly, pie-crust is not a health food but in small doses, we think it’s just fine.


Ingredients:

 

Homemade Pie Crust

2 cups all-purpose flour


2/3 cup shortening


¼ teaspoon salt


6-7 tablespoons cold water



In medium mixing bowl stir together flour and salt.  Cut in shortening until pieces are the size of small peas.  Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of water over part of the mixture and gently toss with a fork. Push to the side of the bowl.  Repeat this process until the entire mixture is moistened.



On lightly floured surface flatten 1 ball of dough with hands.  Roll dough from center to edge forming a circle about 12 inches in diameter.  Ease pastry into pie pan.



For top crust: Roll out second ball of dough.  Cut four slits in top crust.  Place top crust evenly around pie pan.



Pie Filling

6 cups freshly sliced peaches


½ tablespoon Tapioca pudding


1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice


½ teaspoon cinnamon


¼ teaspoon nutmeg



Combine all ingredients and stir well. Pour mixture evenly into a 9 inch pastry lined pie pan. Place top crust evenly over the pan.  Bake at 350◦ for 1 hour.
